You think I am gonna write about evolution v. god made man and chicks? No.
Evolution is night club for straight people in Prahran and it is opposite a gay night club. It is a large place and maybe opens at midnight and closes at 10 or 11 in the morning.
In the local paper for the area which I often skim through there has been an ongoing discussion of night clubs in the area and their impact on local residents.
It does not sound great for them and I have sympathy. Being confronted by drugged people leaving venues when you are out morning shopping is not nice. But we go there shopping in the morning and I have never seen worse than Miss Candy outside a cafe using a very loud voice.
I cannot find a direct url link to Club Evolution. I will look them up in the phone book and give them a call. But tomorrow I will send emails to City of Stonnington and the Liquor Licensing Commision. It will be along the lines of below.
While going to Prahran Market for brunch this morning with two friends, my sister and her three month old baby, it was very disturbing to see a man yelling loudly at a taxi cab outside Club Evolution.
My sister lives in a regional area of Victoria and her opinion at the time was that there were good reasons why she wanted to bring up her daughter in the country.
The situation worsened when the man started kicking the side of the taxi and let out a stream of abuse. The taxi driver stopped and blocked all traffic and confronted the man and there was some pushing and shoving and much more abuse.
The guard outside the Market Hotel intervened to a point but when he started to receive blame from passers by, he backed off and clearly said that the troublesome man was a patron of Evolution and not the Market Hotel. This was already quite clear to me.
While I do appreciate that Prahran/South Yarra is an entertainment precinct, I do not like to see these things when I am at my local shops at 10.30 on a Sunday morning.
There is clearly a serious problem here.
Why weren't there guards from Evolution dealing with the situation?
In my opinion, once someone starts kicking a vehicle it is a police matter. Why weren't they called?
How can this venue continue to operate when they clearly cannot control their patrons? What next? A multiple night club murder as happened a few years ago, maybe this time in the middle of Commercial Road?
