Skip to comments.South Beach Clubs Closing for Urban Beach Week (Not a bad Idea)
Posted on 05/25/2014 11:37:44 AM PDT by equalator
South Beach is 'bout to be mobbed.
It's almost Memorial Day weekend in the 305 (otherwise known as Urban Beach Week), the annual four-day span during which the beach (as well as mainland Miami) gets swarmed by famous rappers, celebrity strippers, and 250,000 party people from all over the Dirty South.
Now, some Dade County residents choose to flee for the holiday. And this year, certain SoBe clubs are even choosing to close till the Urban throng leaves town.

May I ask why clubs and other places, which cater to tourists, would close down with so many tourists arriving for the festival???
No. You may not.
Ouch. We’re not allowed to ask questions about the crowd at urban beach week..........................
I saw on another thread, that hundreds of police were gearing up for urban beach week.
When the bars close because your brand of tourist will cost them more than they will profit and isn’t worth the risk of life and limb for their wait staff and regular customers, then it doesn’t get any more clear than that.
Go to the link and read the comments after the article. The party goers behave badly and cause damage.
What could possibly go wrong?
The Key word is “Urban”. Not exactly a group that’s going to behave and have discussions on Religion.
Funny thing is that Sturgis never has a lot of problems when the bikers show up. I think Motorcycle clubs call a cease fire and the town becomes a Open City.
Surfside Texas ended up closing their beach because of a similar event.
The worst weekend I spent in Galveston, TX was when an event like this was underway. Every main road in town was gridlocked, emergency vehicles could not get through. The world became a urinal. Facilities were trashed, fights, drug ODs, public sex, theft, about any bad behavior you can imagine.
What’s with calling it urban beach Weekend? Liberals have said the word urban is a racist code word. But the organizers of the event call it urban. What’s up with this?
Atlanta used to have “freak nick” It was miserable.
“Whats with calling it urban beach Weekend? Liberals have said the word urban is a racist code word. But the organizers of the event call it urban. Whats up with this?”
Calling it Urban Beach Week rather than Black Beach Week is much more politically correct. Doing that obscures the root cause of the problems.
I assume that you're not referring to the Texas State Square Dance Convention that was held in Galveston back in 2010, are you? I know that we got a little rambunctious, but we were just dancing on the beach ...
and that constituent group is composed of notoriously LOUSY tippers
So when are those clubs going to be sued for refusing to serve blacks...errrr....the urban population?
They prefer tourists who pay for things.
How many had to miss work?
Good point, they prefer paying tourists. As opposed to tourists who just are there doing God knows what, and not spending money.
That’s really bad. I live in Miami. We are a multicultural, but definitely lack the “white guilt” found in liberal cities. Miami is a cool city but most people understand too much of a good thing, isn’t always good.
It's a beautiful, warm, sunny weekend in the Cleveland area (among others) after a winter that wouldn't end and a spring that wouldn't warm up. I honestly wonder what the body count will be.
The Newport Jazz Festival will continue to be missed
I know the producers of the Sturgis series. The only problems caused at Sturgis according to their weeks filming was that the drunks who cause trouble aren’t exactly bikers but wanna be’s. Each bar hire extra security for the events and cops just come in and arrest.
The “urban” code is for tourists and Americans to stay away.
Myrtle Beach SC is having its “urban” bike week. Three dead last night.
And don't start fights, and break things and vandalize the place.
Homina, homina, homina...
I was just going to ask about Myrtle Beach. Didn’t they try to shut down their “urban fest” and judges slammed all the businesses?
That should let you know how bad those "tourists" are. The owners would rather close up and lose some revenue than deal with all of the insanity that comes with Urban Culture strutting its stuff.
That sounds so...PC.
