Since The Mill shut its doors forever, I've gotten married and don't go out all that much - unless she & I want to go together, and have the time, and have the money... such is life.

But before, as a single guy, I attended quite a bit, and it was a blast!

There are few (if any) places left in Richmond that are all about the dancing, and none so worthy as J. Sutters Mill was, or perhaps Hurricanes before it went bye-bye, or the old Kamikazes/ U-Club (don't know what they do there now... and can't remember the newest name). All I know is, from what I can tell, Richmond's remaining bars only focus on live music, occasional karaoke, eating, sitting around, and of course drinking. It was a lot more fun when you could get out, knock back a few, and hit the dance floor... without having to endure the podunkery of the Maverick (not everyone digs country), or the kiddieland that was the old Cherry Pit, or drive halfway to Lex & go to Riptides and then worry about a more expensive cab ride. There really is a gaping hole in Richmond's nightlife that a new J. Sutters could easily and profitably fill. Love to see it.

Hell no. Why do we need another place for infected EKU kids to spread more disease.

Want to help EKU students. Then you are an idiot.

Want to help the towns people. Then run EKU the hell out of town.

Either way matters not. But you can bet your ass the town will scream if someone mentions another drunk hangout.

Wow. So by running one of the 2 largest employers out of town, we'll be helping the townspeople?

Spoken like a non-working piece of crap.

I'd recommend we screen all the so-called disabled, sterilize them, take their food stamps and their SS checks, and send them packing, but then the grocery stores would all close, the checkday and signature loan places wouldn't know what to do, the buy-here-pay-here car lots would dry up, every pharmacy in town would go under... oh, and I'd be a happier citizen!

The only people that cry about more entertainment and night life choices in this community are those whose hypocritical moral agendas mask their own social ineptitude and idiocy. Tell me, Oh Pious One: What value or merit does abstinence from immoral behavior have if it is compelled by default rather than a choice? Why exactly did your supposed god give people free will for? You sound like a pseudo-Christian version of the Taliban, and a tard.

It baffles me that you people have sense enough to use a computer... but then you go and post crap like that, and live up to my every expectation. Now please, piss off.

Think about it.

In the 70's and 80's the bar was unable to survive, and went bankrupt. Even though it had a steady stream of EKU kids that was willing to waste their parents money by handing it to to owners for the chance to lay drunk in the restroom, be assulted by another drunk student, or the be arrested waddling back to Eastern while violating the sobriety laws of the town.
Now years later, with more information as to how places like this hurt students, cost them in grades and money, fines and jail time. And you feel that todays better educated students would be willing to risk this.
I think not. Yes, te owners took a bath on the place once already. Now yoy comei along remembering some archiac memory about the good times, when you were drunk there. But still the owners went uner, and I suggest under is whee they should stay.
No sane person wants the bar, or any bar for that matter to be a pimple on the ass of Richmond.

Another enemy of choice. Step right up.

Students of legal drinking age *are* adults, and as such, can and will continue to choose to do whatever they want with their time and the money given them. As it stands, that money is currently heading up I-75 to Lexington, or being spent funding private parties where a helluva lot more of the types of abuses that you allege can and do happen than in a public gathering place.

Furthermore, there are plenty of responsible folks that are not students, but adult members of the local and surrounding communities, the majority of whom are more than capable of drinking responsibly, despite the extremist falsehoods you seem to subscribe to. Of those hard-working, tax paying citizens, those who favor a DJ and a dance floor might enjoy giving their patronage to such a local establishment, as opposed to taking it elsewhere, as is now the case. You, of course, are welcome to cross yourself and stay home scourging yourself with whips, muttering to spirits, or whatever your presumed piety demands of you. As is *your* legal choice, as well.

While anyone is welcome to their opinions and suppositions to the contrary, I suggest that if anyone would wish to bring a business like this back to Richmond, or any business that will generate tax legal revenue for the community, that they do so, and perhaps try to learn from the fiscal mistakes of their predecessors... and ignore the slanted rhetoric of those who think all alcohol consumption=evil.

Some people won't be happy until they resurrect the already failed notion of prohibition (and consequently, grind this town even further into the black to get it). Their sniveling has done enough for Richmond's revenue stream already, I should think.

Sorry but I had to move this as I posted in the wrong area. But this is the truth plain and simple, if there is such a thing.

---------

I think what the above poster was saying is that downtown bars the likes of Sutter's, The Dog, 1890's, T Bomb's, Phone 3 and many others all have one thing in common. They failed as businesses.

Between the anti-alcohol crowd complaining and calling ATF on them at every chance, and the lack of continuing customers, and I mean all night, every night. Not just on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, because you cannot generate enough monies on three nights per week to sustain the bar. And if you remember, even the three good nights were many times not so good.

Furthermore I read where Sutter's is going to be opened by a man that is now in jail. Surely this cannot be right, as a convicted felon cannot even be inside an establishment that sells alcohol. So ATF will never allow that to happen.

Anyway, if you are my age, and if you remember the above mentioned bars then you must be. What you need to do is realize that the bar scene is a college aged thing, and you have moved on, so find some way to be happy in your life as it is. Even if Sutter's were still open, it would not be the way you remember it.

The new laws and opinions concerning downtown bars have become so stringent that I can assure you that no bars, running wild and free like in the days of Sutter's, will ever be allowed again. Just too many rules and way to much negative support.

In short, it's time to grow up and do adult things. Good luck in your future.

So you want Greg to join in a business that he cannot go into without going to jail??? Sounds to me like you are a fu<king idiot. Sutters is gone and gone for good. You want it, you open it. Waste your own money.

You guys need to do your research about successful businesses. Sutter's and several other bars were open for 10-15 years +/-. The SBA and other research shows most businesses only last 1-3 years if that much. Sutter's went longer than that before it was sold. Often, second owner's don't fair as well for a collection of reasons, not related to the viability of the business.

I would guess the primary reason for the businesses like Sutter's etc, closing up shop downtown was the change in the local law that allowed alcohol to be sold outside of downtown, primarily the bypass. Small Businesses often disappear overnight as a result of a single change in a local, state or federal law.

As for the comments about infected EKU students and doing away with EKU. If your daddy had not married his sister you wouldn't be like that so it's not your fault. You're a victim, go collect your next welfare check.

I have heard that during any given year, as high as 83 percent of EKU females have, or have had, some form of STD. Now that says the pu88y is easy but the risk is great. So don't get drunk and then date.
You can verify this number by speaking to an EKU graduate. Just call one up and he or she will come out and talk to you. Just pay for the pizzas they are delivering and ask whatever questions you want.
