Out here in Redville, The Lovely Mrs. Gekko and I spent an evening in Mason watching an Eric Clapton tribute band; Slowhand. After the show, we went home for some strawberry shortcake and watched In Plain Sight prior to going bed at 11:00.
But I get that for some, life in Redville is a little too pedestrian. You want to add some spice so you Obama voters would much rather head to a place like Annie's here in town..........
Two men died early today in a shooting outside Annie’s nightclub, 4343 Kellogg Avenue, Cincinnati police said.
The victims’ names and ages have not been released.
An off-duty Cincinnati police officer working a security detail at the club heard shots ring out about 2:30 a.m. and summoned for help, police said.
Homicide investigators, who are still following leads, are not available for comment this morning.
Police said they are searching for at least one suspect who fled in a maroon Chevrolet Tahoe.
There have been at least two other shootings over the past year outside Annie’s nightclub.Two men suffered non-life threatening injuries in a June 2008 shooting outside the nightclub.
In the most recent incident, a Cincinnati police sergeant had to shoot a suspect twice on Nov. 17 to defend himself after the suspect shot at him following a traffic and foot pursuit, according to a police statement released at the time.
Police pursued the suspect, Dimitri Rogers, 22, after two other Cincinnati police officers saw him fire a gun in the club’s parking lot and then flee in a red Ford Tempo, the statement reads.
Rogers was convicted of several criminal charges and sentenced to 13 years in a state prison.
So I guess you could have spent a boring evening with the Gekko's or dodged bullets at Annies. Call me a old fuddy duddy but I kind of like the fact that I was able to get up this morning without a bullet wound.........
By the way, the front man for Slowhand sings much better than Clapton ever did.
