Bad form. No class. Deserved to be laughed out of the store.

I have it on good authority that a certain neighborhood association used the occasion of a certain street festival held last October to try and charge a restaurant a "booth fee" to remain open during the event because the adjoining street was to be closed to traffic. Got that? Some associations that have street festivals raise money by permitting with fees organizations to come in and set up booths during the festivals to promote their products and services. But the particular association in question approached an established business located in a proper structure on the festival route and suggested that they should pay a fee to stay open and conduct their usual Saturday business.
