Expect more news from Suite Ultralounge this morning

Suite Ultralounge, the bottle club in the basement of the Belvedere with a history of violence, is appealing the liquor board's decision to yank their license. The hearing starts at 9:30 a.m. in Baltimore Circuit Court, and Sun reporter Justin Fenton will be there to cover it.

This morning, Peter Hermann published two chilling recounts of violence near Suite, as told by the victims. Both cases seem to be random assaults on passersby. Read his post here.

All I can say is, Suite is out of control and needs to be shut down, period. I'll keep you posted on what happens at the hearing.

I was pretty close by on that infamous night last summer when two (right?) people got shot right out front and it shocked the living crap out of me. Quite frankly I can't believe the immediate community hasn't torn the place asunder due to all of the incidents of violence - their liquor license should have been yanked a looong time ago.

It is quite a scene to see 200 kids milling about outside the Belvedere after this thing shuts down for the night.
