A friend of mine worked this one location the last 2 weeks of july for years. Built it up and made a good name for himself and good money.
Two years ago, he was told the city wasn't going to issue him a permit for that year. He ask why, they said the "city" was going to have a fund raiser and had hired an out of state show.
My friend said, " I don't care if you have your own show, but yours in 3 months after mine" they said " we only allow one show per year, and ours is going to be that show"
He appealed to the Mayor who shut him down 2 minutes into the conversation.
This year, everythings good. Permits are granted, the Mayor will be taken out to dinner, and passes for the show!
