support our emperors lounge

To: Friends, Professionals, and those who just like a night club that is safe, upscale, has good music and to socialize with like minds and relax. From: patron and concerned community citzen Darryl Z. Oates It has come to my attention that the owner Mr. Shawn A. Eddy and his and our Emperors lounge ,located at 10 capital ave.,is being harrassed by people and forces that intend to see it close. The harrassment has been a bucket of paint being thrown from window above his establishment, to refrigeration being sabotaged, to a slew of harrassing phone calls, one of which stated \"we closed Low Country\", a formerly black owned club that was located across the street, \"we will close you\". Also a debilitating business law suit that claims the club is making to much noise, and for those who attend know that is not true. Mr. Eddy, a young black entrepreneur, of which I must interject, makes all his customers feel comfortable regardless of race or ethnicity. I believe by perponderance of evidence he is being harrassed because he is a black and has a number of black and ethnic customers. I am asking those who have been to the club or who just believe in the spirit of Amercian entreprenureship for all to sign this pettion with at least an email address and a name. The names gotten will not be used for promational use. Darryl Z. Oates We must take a stand now or have no choice in the future thank you Emperors lounge

For a city that claims it wants to attract young professionals, it needs to support businesses such as the Emporer that illustrate and bring together intellect and style on a social level. For Hartford, its an shinning example that this city is finally tapping into its own resources and developing into a place that people want to come and live in. I encourage all who read this message to support the Emperor.
