Very interesting point made in the article.
"So, what has a restaurant in Wayne County got to do with Rochester? Well, nothing…and everything!
Until this past January, Shea’s was located on the East Avenue strip in downtown Rochester. The attitude of Citygov toward small local businesses has become downright oppressive, with taxes, fees, restrictions and inspectors each looking to get their pound of flesh. These were the lemons Citygov threw at Shea’s; so Mark took those lemons and made lemonade in Ontario! And with him went the sales tax revenue that Citygov depends so heavily upon, another example of Rochester being penny-wise and pound foolish!

I don't know have a place where a bunch of whites congregate always brings trouble.
Piano bars just draw the wrong type of people(drunk whites), and it's just asking for trouble.

Rubbish! Piano bars draw people who enjoy music with melody, harmony and understandable lyrics as distinct from the mindless, tuneless, aggressive screaming and thumping that the music industry is forcing on us now.
