Doesn't Wilmington have noise curfews? Late (midnite or 1 a.m.) Friday and Saturday nights if you drive past The Freaksters Roadhouse your whole car vibrates from the loud music coming from inside. During Catfish Days you could barely drive on Rte 53 for all the people walking in/across the street. They wouldn't move, step aside or get out of the way of a moving vehicle. Forget giving a little toot on the horn! The people turned around and flipped you off! The noise that night with an outdoor band was outrageous! You could hear the noise coming over the bridge and all the way out to the Launching pad!!! And if you wish to attend a movie while the Roadhouse is having an 'event' forget parking anywhere near the theatre! Oh, I forgot! He brings 'big money' to this poor little town so I guess it's ok to let him slide with all the noise and rudeness! Are the 'big dollars' paying off the police so the cops look the other way? Hmm? Interesting! Glad I don't live within a half mile radius of the joint!

I was told that there is a noise curfew, but it could be overridden by permits from the city council for special occasions. Guess some establishments can get more exceptions than others and who cares about the people in the neighborhoods who have to put up with the noise. If you have to get your sleep before going to work it is too bad because no notice is ever given about when the noise limits are extended or lifted. Perhaps if they posted these in the paper on a weekly basis it would be more considerate to the people in town.

All those charity's these bars do are just big business for them. They could care less, they just want the customers in there drinking. Show some real numbers, in comparison to what they take in. Freak is the perfect example of that.

I think you spend more time on here complaining about those raising money for (multiple) charities. It also seems to me that you could do a hell of a lot of good, if you put that energy elsewhere.

definitely big business. It's cause vs effect; supply vs demand what have you. I would put money on it though, that freak has been one of the main reasons these charities and events do SO well. Multiple millions of dollars have been handed to non-for-profit organizations in OUR area in the last couple years. He has been a huge part of that, along with others. People complain about the US helping third world countries and not helping our own; and you people sit on here and vetch about ones who do a LOT to help our citizens.

no just letting getting the facts know that they are clueless, and the"CORNER DRUGSTORE" had nothing to do with any complaint about their noise. Could care less, I live no where near their noise, therefore before they go posting something, they should get it straight FIRST!!

You've got a 7 and 8 year old and your teaching them about putting something on the Internet, yet you are on the Internet posting negative things towards someone you don't even know. Ate you teaching them that as well?? And how old are you???

While you may perceive some things as negative because you don't see eye to eye with your views and I find your earlier grammar lacking in basic structure, I was alluding to your foul language you used towards me and well you don't even know me. I teach my children to never ever use foul language like you did earler.

May you have a superlative good day sir.
