Video Journalism Documents the “MOOD” After Closing
Warning … this video may cause dizziness if watched too closely. It is meant as documentation of the troublesome mayhem that occurs in the neighborhood as a direct result of the MOOD Lounge business. Turn up your speakers to get a fuller experience of the nocturnal neighborhood noises!
“The MOOD Lounge, after closing for the night late in the evening on Saturday, September 10th / early in the morning about 3:20 am on Sunday, September 11th. To show the noise the neighborhood puts up with. Filmed with a low-tech iPhone 3Gs.”
This property is belongs to the collection of buildings – stables, residences and artisan shops in the alley that were awarded the status of National Register Historic Property recognition in 1990. The MOOD Lounge behavior not only disrespectfully violates the restrictive covenants of this coveted national recognition, but they also continuously and lawlessly violate their own voluntary agreement with the community.
The owner of the property (1318 9th Street LLC) has filed for bankruptcy. The MOOD Lounge business is under investigation by the AG’s office.
A petition to close the business is circulating through the community. The neighborhood, city council members, the ANC and many others are really tired of the bad mood being created by MOOD Lounge!
