The condemnation will last until a city council member is met by a more strident member of Isalm. Then the city council will be all “peachy keen” on the religious beliefs of the owners.

I would not normally go there for several reasons.
1) I can’t afford it.
2) it’s owned by a muslim.
Not being homo friendly isn’t one of them.

Unless the victim of course is a boy....then it's perfectly ok.

Years ago I worked for Culver City Datsun.
The owner had our Christmas party at the Beverly Hills Hotel and a grand time was had by all.
Nice place back then.
