Show Me's Ruckus Raises Residents Ire

Mayor George Pradel says he will meet with homeowners after early morning incident on Monday.

After an early morning ruckus Monday, neighbors who had concerns about Show Me’s opening along Ogden Avenue will be meeting with Mayor George Pradel, according to a report in the Naperville Sun.

Police were called to the restaurant at 1:11 a.m. for the report of a fight in progress, but found the noise was the result of a large group of about 60 people leaving the restaurant at one time, according to a story in the Naperville Sun.

Last December the Naperville Liquor Commission granted the restaurant a liquor license after the commission found there was nothing in the company’s history to keep it from issuing a license.

Residents in Naperville that the restaurant patrons would be responsible for drunk driving near a residential neighborhood, along with other criminal activity. After the city's investigation it found that there were no reports of illegal activity, that the company had a clean background and that there was no legal reason for withholding a license.

In this recent incident, Pradel said that it was just one of those things, though he said such situations could not be tolerated.

The local residents who oppose Show-Me's are going to go out of their way to find things wrong with the business. It's their own fault for buying homes adjacent to Ogden Blvd. If the restaurant is doing something wrong, then they should adjust their business practice, but the odds are that they weren't.
