Infusion Lounge: Our “Upscale Nightclub of Choice for Hipsters, Celebrities, and Global Jet-Setters” – Yish

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

I’ll tell you, I saw “upscale nightclub of choice for hipsters” and I was settling in for an epic press release, perhaps the best of 2013 so far.

But then it turned into a more normal press release, into something like listening to an acquaintance talk about a recent trip that was turbo, turbo fun.

Here it is, below, with the more appalling sections in bold.

On the catwalk, well you know what I mean, I like to do my little dance on the catwalk, oh on the catwalk…

Jesus Tap-Dancing Christ: More Money Laundering Found in Ed Lee Campaign – Meet CitiApartments’ “Eviction Goon”

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

[UPDATE: Senator Leland Yee is on the case this AM - he's doing a presser involving this latest allegation. (I guess it's too late to call this an October Surprise, and frankly, it's not all that surprising neither. Let's call it a November Expectation. Brace yourself for more.) Oh, and Leland is onto some Chinatown voting sting operation as well.

And there's this: "Statement from Chiu Campaign on Money Laundering Allegations - SAN FRANCISCO (November 2, 2011): Addisu Demissie, spokesman for the David Chiu for Mayor campaign, released the following statement about a San Francisco Chronicle report of potential money laundering by supporters of Mayor Ed Lee:

"This is now the fourth allegation of illegal conduct by Mayor Lee's supporters, and it should be investigated fully by the District Attorney and appropriate authorities,” Demissie said. “With six days to go before Election Day, it will be up to the voters to decide whether this kind of bullying, pay-to-play politics is what they want to see at City Hall for the next 4 years. David is going to spend the last 6 days of this race talking about why he represents a new generation of leadership for San Francisco that will stand tough against the special interests and shake things up at City Hall."

Paid for by David Chiu for Mayor 2011, P.O. Box 641541, San Francisco, CA 94164, FPPC##1337108]

Well, it looks like early-rising City Attorney Dennis Jose Herrera is the first one out of the gates to follow up on today’s piece from San Francisco Chronicle Staff Writers John Coté and Heather Knight.

Testify, DJH:

“Too many of Ed Lee’s supporters act as though they’re above the law — on money laundering, on ballot tampering, and more – and Ed Lee isn’t strong enough to stop it.

Amen.

Earlier this year, Ed Lee was picked unanimously to be an Interim Mayor. He wasn’t picked to be a Reformer. He’ll never be a Reformer.

In Ed Lee’s world, the notorious Willie Brown Administration deserves an A+, Rose Pak is not a cancer on Chinatown, and corner-cutting PG&E (“KABOOM!“) is simply “a great local corporation” and a “great company that gets it.”

Oh well.

Is Ed Lee Breaking Bad? Has the City Family corrupted him? Or has he corrupted the City Family? A little of both?

All the deets:

“Herrera calls on FPPC to join D.A. in investigating new Ed Lee campaign money laundering charge - CitiApartments’ former eviction goon led reimbursement-for-donation scheme, suggesting political payback for City Attorney’s 2006 tenant-protection lawsuit

SAN FRANCISCO (Nov. 2, 2011) — City Attorney Dennis Herrera this morning called on the state Fair Political Practices Commission to join District Attorney George Gascón in reviewing new allegations reported in today’s San Francisco Chronicle that Ed Lee’s mayoral campaign received donations that appear to have been illegally laundered to skirt San Francisco $500 per donor contribution maximum.[1] Andrew Hawkins, a property services manager whose harrowing tenant intimidation tactics were central to Herrera’s lawsuit five years ago against the Lembi Group landlords’ once high-rolling CitiApartments empire, promised reimbursements to at least sixteen employees in exchange for maximum contributions to Ed Lee’s mayoral campaign at an Oct. 18, 2011 fundraiser, according to the Chronicle.

It is the second major allegation of campaign money laundering to benefit Ed Lee’s campaign. The first, involving GO Lorrie’s airport shuttle, is the subject of separate investigations by Gascón’s office and the FPPC, the state commission responsible to investigate and impose penalties for violations of the California Political Reform Act. Such schemes have been prosecuted as felonies in California for conspiring to evade campaign contribution limits, and for making campaign contributions under false names.

I think San Franciscans have now seen enough,” said City Attorney Dennis Herrera. “Too many of Ed Lee’s supporters act as though they’re above the law — on money laundering, on ballot tampering, and more — and Ed Lee isn’t strong enough to stop it. If this is how they behave before an election, just imagine how they’ll behave after the election, if Ed Lee wins. This scheme is clearly a bid for political payback by CitiApartments henchmen for my litigation to protect tenants five years ago. It is patently illegal, and I call on the FPPC to join the District Attorney in investigating.”

Hawkins is listed in Ed Lee’s campaign disclosures as the owner of Archway Property Services. As the one-time head of CitiApartments’ “tenant relocation program,” the gun-carrying Hawkins is reported to have coerced more than 2,500 tenants out of their rent-controlled units, and once boasted in civil court testimony, “I run people out of their apartments for a living. It’s what I do.

Several recipients of Hawkins’ email invitation to an Oct. 18 event on Russian Hill made contributions to Ed Lee’s campaign on the same date. All contributed the maximum $500.

Herrera sued the CitiApartments residential rental property behemoth in Aug. 2006 for an array of unlawful business and tenant harassment practices, which sought to dispossess long-term residents of their rent-controlled apartments. The coerced vacancies freed the company to make often-unpermitted renovations to units, and then re-rent them to new tenants at dramatically increased market rates. The illegal business model enabled CitiApartments, Skyline Realty and other entities under the sway of real estate family patriarch Frank Lembi to aggressively outbid competitors for residential properties throughout San Francisco for several years — before lawsuits and a sharp economic downturn forced the aspiring empire into bankruptcies, foreclosures and receiverships.

A 2009 San Francisco Magazine feature story on the Lembi real estate empire[2] described Andrew Hawkins as “a burly former nightclub bouncer who headed up CitiApartments’ relocation program.” Hawkins reportedly led teams as large as 14 full-time employees, according to the report, and the company estimated that “Hawkins relocated more than 2,500 tenants.” An earlier exposé in 2006 by the San Francisco Bay Guardian[3] cited civil court testimony in which Hawkins boasted to one tenant’s family member, “I run people out of their apartments for a living. It’s what I do.”

SoMA NIMBY Jeanmarie Guenot vs. Teh Internets: Did the Amoeba Music Blog Pull a Post About Noise and Nightclubs?

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Appears as if the blog at Amoeba Music, the AMOEBLOG, pulled a recent post over fear of a defamation lawsuit. But, as always, You Make The Call.

Here’s the story straight, straight from the MSM’s Brent Begin. Now, here’s the back-and-forth between somebody, some random or somebody’s proxy and Kevin Montgomery at the Uptown Almanac. And here’s the cache of a post at AMOEBLOG:

Could it be that Amoeba is ascared of getting sued?

Yes.

Should Amoeba have been scared?

Can’t tell. Not sure what’s wrong with the post they put up.

Oh well.

Anyway, that’s something to ponder as you listen to Song A Day #815: Jeanmarie Guenot and Her Quest To Kill SF Nightlife from Jonathan Mann

Dennis Herrera Throws Down: Operators of Troubled Club Suede in Fishermans Wharf Probihited from Reopening

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

I’ll tell you, you can win in criminal court all the live long day, but when the City Attorney of San Francisco wants to shut you down for good reason, like you doing things that are muy pro hi bi da do, that’s it. It’s game over, man, game over.

Now, when I was there at the Club Suede, at various political fundraisers and whatnot, everything was copacetic, but I never experienced it on a weekend night so I don’t know what it was like.

But what I do know is that these operators won’t be operating a nightclub at 383 Bay ever again. Get all the deets, below. 

San Francisco’s Happy Warrior…

…wasn’t too pleased with the owners of the Suede nightclub:

Herrera secures injunction to permanently bar ‘Club Suede’ operators from re-opening a place of entertainment

Agreement includes $20,000 payment to the City by owners of Fisherman’s Wharf nightclub that was the site of fatal shooting in February
 
SAN FRANCISCO (Oct. 20, 2010)— A San Francisco Superior Court judge has approved a settlement and stipulated injunction negotiated by City Attorney Dennis Herrera that will permanently prohibit the owners and management of Club Suede, the notorious nightclub that was the site of a fatal shooting earlier this year, from operating an entertainment venue at the Fisherman’s Wharf property. 

The injunction approved by Judge Peter J. Busch this morning bars defendants Hanson Wong, Ken Wong, Sunny Auyeung, Jason Gee, Frank Chan, Li Jiang, and Taliesin Entertainment Group, LLC from opening or seeking permits to operate a place of entertainment at 383 Bay Street, or maintaining the property in a manner that constitutes a public nuisance.  The agreement additionally provides that the property must be maintained at all times in compliance with San Francisco Municipal Codes intended to protect the health and safety of tenants and neighbors.

“This agreement protects the safety of nightclub goers and neighbors, and assures fair treatment to the vast majority of law-abiding entertainment venues that comprise one of San Francisco’s most vibrant economic sectors,” said Herrera.  “I’m grateful that the owners and operators of Club Suede recognized our firm resolve in pursuing this case, and agreed to a fair and reasonable settlement to conclude it.”

Club Suede was the site of a fatal shooting in the early hours of Feb. 7, 2010, and its operators have been reported for a pattern of nuisance and unlawful conduct dating as far back as 2007.  Though Club Suede voluntarily closed its doors some months ago, today’s stipulated injunction permanently prevents the operators from reopening a place of entertainment at the violence-plagued establishment.  The venue had been a frequent site of Police Department service calls for violent incidents, including some involving firearms; neighborhood +-vandalism; and crowd control problems, according to the civil complaint Herrera filed in April.  The club’s long established pattern of illegal and unfair business practices additionally includes operating beyond permitted business hours; permitting consumption of alcohol after 2:00 a.m.; inadequately credentialed security personnel; and multiple violations of state and local codes.

The case is: City and County of San Francisco and People of the State of California v. Hanson Wong et al., S.F. Superior Court case no. 498-677, filed Apr. 15, 2010.  A copy of the court order and additional documentation is available on the City Attorney’s Web site at http://sfcityattorney.org/index.aspx?page=317.

Dennis Herrera Throws Down: Troubled Club Suede Won’t Be Reopening for a Good Long Time

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

San Francisco City Attorney Dennis J. Herrera has taken steps to make sure that troubled Club Suede won’t be opening again anytime soon.

All the deets:

Herrera secures court-ordered closure of ‘Club Suede,’ site of fatal shooting. Superior Court’s order assures that violence-plagued nightclub must remain shuttered for the duration of City Attorney’s legal action
 
 SAN FRANCISCO (Sept. 28, 2010) — A San Francisco Superior Court judge this morning granted City Attorney Dennis Herrera’s motion for a preliminary injunction to shutter Club Suede, a notorious Fisherman’s Wharf nightclub that was the site of a fatal shooting earlier this year. In issuing the preliminary injunction, Judge Peter J. Busch found that Herrera is likely to prevail on the merits on the causes of action alleged in his complaint filed in April of this year. Hanson Wong and Taliesin Entertainment Group are named as defendants for their operation of the establishment at383 Bay Street. Though Club Suede voluntarily closed its doors some months ago, today’s preliminary injunction will prevent the operators from reopening the violence-plagued establishment for the duration of the lawsuit.
 
“San Francisco treasures its vibrant night life and the vast majority of entertainment venues that operate responsibly,” said Herrera. “Unfortunately, Club Suede’s refusal to abide by the law has created a dangerous environment for club-goers and neighbors alike. Policing irresponsible establishments like Club Suede is about protecting public safety and assuring fair treatment to the law-abiding entertainment businesses that comprise one of our City’s most important cultural and economic sectors.”
 
Club Suede was the site of a fatal shooting in the early hours of Feb. 7, 2010, and its operators have been reported for a pattern of nuisance and unlawful conduct dating as far back as 2007. The venue has been a frequent site of service calls by the San Francisco Police Department for violent incidents, including some involving firearms; neighborhood vandalism; and crowd control problems, according to Herrera’s complaint. The club’s long established pattern of illegal and unfair business practices additionally includes operating beyond permitted business hours; permitting consumption of alcohol after 2:00 a.m.; inadequately credentialed security personnel; and multiple violations of state and local police and safety codes. The City and the defendants are currently engaged in settlement discussions.

The case is: City and County of San Francisco and People of the State of California v. Hanson Wong; Taliesin Entertainment Group, LLC et al., San Francisco Superior Court case no. 498-677, filed Apr. 16, 2010.

Dennis Herrera Throws Down: Demands Response from 414 Mason, Site of Tourist Slaying

Friday, August 13th, 2010

San Francisco City Attorney Dennis J Herrera is going after the owner / operator of 414 Mason, the site of the recent Union Square shootout that resulted in the death of German tourist Mechthild Schröer. (The SFPD is still working on this case – they were down in Fremont yesterday.)

Mr. Herrera is alleging that the August 8th party was illegal and overcrowded. All the deets are below.

San Francisco’s Happy Warrior, DJH:

Herrera initiates legal action against teen party venue in Union Square tourist shooting. Demand letter to owner, operator of rental space alleges Fire Code violations, unlawful business practices in ‘horrific incident’ 

SAN FRANCISCO (Aug. 13, 2010) — City Attorney Dennis Herrera has taken a step toward suing the owner and operator of a Union Square venue where an illegal, overcrowded party for high school-aged youths last Sunday was marred by gunfire that injured two teens and took the life a German tourist. 

Herrera’spre-litigation demand letter to Joseph Ursino, owner of the building at 414 Mason Street, and Curtis Matthews, who rented out the party space, alleges that the two face, “at a minimum, civil liability for violating the California Fire Code and for unlawful business practices.”  Such violations can be punishable by fines and penalties as well as disgorgement of all profits related to the unlawful conduct.  The letter sent this morning acknowledges that the City Attorney’s Office is also evaluating the potential liability of Labriette Collins, the event’s promoter. 

“Because of the tragic circumstances and grave public safety concerns surrounding the event and how you and others managed it, I will seek full legal redress to affirm public confidence in laws intended to protect the safety of San Francisco’s residents and visitors,” Herrera’s letter states.  “Vigorous enforcement of these laws is additionally essential to guarantee fair treatment to the vast majority of responsible entertainment business operators, who invest the care and expense necessary to abide by the law, and who comprise one of our City’s most important economic sectors.” 

All the deets, and the demand letter itself, after the jump.

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom Issues Statement about Slain German Tourist Mechthild Schroer

Monday, August 9th, 2010

If this isn’t international news it will be soon. At the very least, it’s nice to see that the mayor issued a statement about it today.

Mechthild Schroer, the woman on the right in this photo, was slain in the Union Square area last night:

The Mayor’s statement:

MAYOR GAVIN NEWSOM’S STATEMENT ON WEEKEND SHOOTINGS & CLUB REGULATIONS. Mayor Newsom Offers Condolences to Victims of Violence, Signs Legislation to Give Entertainment Commission Greater Power to Revoke Problem Club Permits

San Francisco, CA – Mayor Gavin Newsom today strongly condemned this weekend’s separate shootings that resulted in the death of Mechthild Schroeer of Germany, along with four wounded in the Theater District and South of Market neighborhoods.

“On behalf of our entire City, I offer my deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mechthild Schroeer, who died needlessly from this senseless violence, and to those who were injured in these disturbing incidents. I urge anyone with any information about the two shootings on the 400 block of Mason Street and near 1015 Folsom nightclub to notify the Police department immediately to aid in the ongoing investigations.  

I also commend the brave taxi driver and many pedestrians and other witnesses who aided the San Francisco Police Department in apprehending suspects in the 400 block of Mason incident. These people represent the best of our City and our values.

Though our homicide rate so far this year remains at a historic low, we will not tolerate violence in our City’s neighborhoods or senseless shootings that occur near and around San Francisco nightclubs and social clubs. Nightlife is an important part of our City’s cultural and economic vibrancy, but there is nothing more important than the public safety of our residents and visitors. We will continue to pursue every possible means to prevent violence outside clubs and hold club owners and promoters accountable.”

Today, Mayor Newsom also signed legislation strengthening the Entertainment Commission’s ability to permanently revoke the permits of problem clubs, passed by the Board of Supervisors last week. The legislation follows recent incidents near Jelly’s Dance Cafe in the Mission Bay, El Rincon in the Mission, and Suede in North Beach. In December 2009, Mayor Newsom sponsored legislation which granted the Entertainment Commission the power to issue emergency suspensions and temporary closures, along with other powers to deal with problem clubs. In May 2009, Mayor Newsom sponsored legislation passed by the Board of Supervisors to give the SFPD greater authority to discourage and prevent loitering outside nightclubs.

Dennis Herrera Throws Down: Say Good-Bye to Suede Nightclub at 383 Bay

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Our City Attorney Dennis J. Herrera can’t abide scofflaws, as you should probably already know. By the time he picks you out as one of a “few bad apples” and you’re appearing in Fugitive.com it’s already too late.

Like this morning, at 383 Bay Street, the site of boarded-up Suede Nightclub and the scene of a host of problems. Check it out, looks as if the entire City, including elements of the Entertainment Commission, wants this Club Suede shut down for far longer than just 30 days.

The scene today at Powell and Bay, with Board of Supervisors President and District 2 Supe David Chiu and members of the Entertainment Commission and the SFPD. We had elected and appointed officials all lined up taking turns to herald the value of a “vibrant” nightlife scene in San Francisco. Then they all ripped on Suede:

Who’ll defend you, Suede? Your mouthpiece, sure, but will he/she be enough?

No. We’re way past the beginning of the end now. We’re at the end of the end.

“City Attorney Dennis Herrera will be joined by Police Chief George Gascón, Board President Supervisor David Chiu, Entertainment Commissioners Terrance Allan and Audrey Joseph at a press conference this morning, Thursday, April 15, for an announcement relating to today’s filing of a complaint against the owner and operator of Club Suede.
 
Club Suede is a notorious public nuisance in the Fisherman’s Wharf area where the club’s unruly crowds, fights, shootings, and stabbings have plagued the business community and surrounding neighborhood.  The club’s egregious pattern of disorderly conduct eventually led to the violence that culminated in this past February’s fatal shooting.
 
What:
Press conference on City Attorney Dennis Herrera’s litigation against the owner and operator of Club Suede

Who:
City Attorney Dennis Herrera
Police Chief George Gascón
Board President Supervisor David Chiu
Entertainment Commissioner Terrance Allan 
Entertainment Commissioner Audrey Joseph
Other community representatives, industry leaders
