    OMG that’s freakin’ hilarious that they named it Fun Fair after the porno video place (that was allegedly also dealing drugs) on 5TH Street – and that our community got shut down.

    Don’t confuse the Mount Vernon Triangle Community Improvement District (MVTCID) with the Mount Vernon Square Neighborhood Association (MVSNA). Our bid tax goes to the MVTCID to market and keep the Mount Vernon Triangle safe and clean. The MVTCID has nothing to do with the MVSNA which is the organization having the happy hour at the strip club.

    Correct. Also MVSNA is not spending any money on the happy hour, neighbors should bring their own singles.
