    Conditions at the Chateau Hotel were bad under Jack Gore Jr., the previous owner and got worse under the new owner BJB. In addition to the-room by room gutting that happened while tenants still lived there, BJB deliberately damaged the building by removing water pipes, causing leaks which never stopped and damaging the floors ,wall, and ceiling of a occupied building.

    @ Lance - all you ever hear in any media release or discussion is how great the festivals are and any suggestions of improvement are immediately hushed and considered hostile.

    All people are asking here in this thread is:

    - Transparency of donations - Midsommerfest is very transparent, people were asking about others
    - 3rd party companies that host the events - take the $$ and stiff the charities
    - volunteers need to understand it is a "suggested donation" which means VOLUNTARY.
    - that people DO live "in" a street fair - yes, my front door opens onto Clark St at the flashpoint and my garage on the alley and we would like to get home after a long day of work (yes, we do work on weekends), run our errands and not be hassled
    - that People be gentle with the neighborhood... if you think cleaning dog poop is bad... try human anything that gets left in our gangways during a street fair because people can't be bothered by using porta potty's and more beer and fried food sounded like a good idea

    So,yes, get out of your house and go to them - but don't be flaming self entitled drunk jerk and allow us to try to work on how to make it better for the WHOLE neighborhood after the revelers leave.

    If the donations amounted to more maybe I would think differently - but the Water Tower for Andersonville has raised nearly $150k over the year and while the donation from MidSommerfest gave it a jump - the rest was done privately. When you say it is good for a neighborhood, if you poll the stores they will tell you different and if it was good for the restaurants I guess the wait staff would be more excited - but the regulars tell me they don't want to work those days.

    It's all about balance - so I think the negatives should be raised so they can be worked on
