Save The Mean Eyed Cat

My turn to give, I have seen this in emails and MySpace bulletins and had meaning to post:

Chris Marsh, owner of the Mean Eyed Cat, has worked very hard to create a fabulous "Austin Landmark" style bar on West 5th Street. Many of you are quite familiar with it! Now, he is in jeopardy of losing it due to a zoning change. The Gables Condominiums were required (by vote of the neighborhood and the City) to leave his bar untouched during their new project. However, due to a zoning change, the bar is now in danger anyway because it wil change to "retail" zone and he can't serve alcohol. Chris has already meet with the City Council members and the Mayor. But he now needs 2000 votes by June 5, 2007 in order to successfully change the Zoning of his bar.

It will only take a few seconds to log on and vote. Just enter your name, email address and a comment if you like.


There is also a launch party for Rare Magazine tonight at the Cat, you can go sign in person if that's your poison.
