    thats fucked up!! He should keep and eye on who his shit is being run!



  2. 2

    That's stupid! How can someone "keep an eye" on that type of business 7 days a week? If an employee breaks the law, it doesn't mean the boss is guilty also! But now, Perez starts with his inuendos (Do you think Pete knew? Sure he knew! He personaly gave orders to his barman to target underage drinkers… Come on!!!!)

    Ugh, come on! Just go to Buzznet and read how the so-called e-scene queens, which are mostly underage, get served alcoholic beverages in those infamous L. A. hot spots such as Villa, Les Deux etc. Why does nobody shut those clubs down for a change? I bet the police would find a lot of minors with alcohol in their hand, if they would really care to prevent underage drinking and wouldn't be bribed to look the other way by the owners of the clubs.
    I wonder what Pete did to piss off the local authorities? Must be more behind that story. Perhaps, some minor almost died due to alcohol poisoning?

    Oh shut up mario



  5. 5

    please - the bartender does what he wants to do when the boss isn't around. of course pete didn't say, "hey! let's serve to minors and maybe we can all go to jail!" be realistic - pete had no clue.



  6. 6

    No I do not believe he knew. why would anyone jeopardize there business or there name in public. That's ridiculous to even suggest it. Sorry.



  7. 7

    hahaha thats funny



  8. 8

    Why would anyone buy a bar and not take care of it? The only reason people invest in bar is so they could be there. That dumb, Pete.

    Re: curiousred – It doesn't matter. If your name is listed as the president of a corp, or you own the place, YOU are responsible. The bartender, if caught is individualy charged also, but the boss is always more responsible. I've charged hundreds of guys for violations of law who had no idea what was going on, but because they owned the place, they are responsible. If you own it, your employees are your responsibility, hire good ones you can trust.

    I don't think he knew that bouncers were letting in underage drinkers, but it happens all of the time in nyc…



  11. 11

    GO TO THE BARS WEBSITE…IT SAYS IT IS CLOSED FOR "MAINTENANCE ISSUES"…sureeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee if thats what you want to call it……



  12. 12

    Good, shut that shit down and it needs a fine. No I don't think he knew about the underage drinking. I don't know him or anything, but I don't see how he would know.



  13. 13

    pfft americas drinking age is messed up! people aren't children at 20. I don't even know how you could argue differently. leave pete wentz alone regardless, mistakes happen.



  14. 14

    doubt he knew. i dont think he'd take such a risk

  15. mox says – reply to this

    nice, you used two of the pictures i emailed in yesterday! i had my doubts as to whether you would post on this at all, as i know you are involved in the chicago location, but good for you. anyone else notice that their website claims that they are closed for "renovations"?



  16. 16

    It happens. The city I live in, underaged kids get in bars all the time because they don't check IDs.



  17. 17

    you get in trouble for that in america? lol ive been going out to the same pubs and clubs since i was like 14…how do the police even find out?



  18. 18

    18-20 year olds are hardly kids. Give me a break. They didn't give it to toddlers.

    I work for a restaurant company in NYC. Unfortunately the NYPD has been conducting a sting in NYC by sending in underage officers who refuse to show id and show their badges as id, intimidate the bartenders and then when the bartenders serve them, then the bar is closed due to service of under-age patrons. This is a way for the NYPD to increase revenue for the City and of course making themselves look good. This is not fair in this economy to bait people into serving underage patrons and then putting people out of work.



  20. 20

    I work for a bar in NYC and for the last year NYPD has been conducting undercover stings where the NYPD sends in underage officers. These underage officers refused to show id and present their badge as id. They bully the bartenders//waitresses into serving them and then the establishment is given a fine and closed down. It is not fair in this economy to badger people into serving underage officers and then forcing people to become unemployed when their job is closed down. This is not right.



  21. 21

    Uh arent you a financial backer of angels and kings? at least the chicago one? why are u posting bad PR on a club u have invested interest in?

    and pete is supposed to be ur partner in this, y not cut him some slack? its not like an underage kids never been to a bar before…



  22. 22

    I'm Happy that I can drink on the age of 16
    In The Netherlands its legal then.

    But if it was'nt legal I'll try to drink otherwise!



  23. 23

    i am going to assume that pete wentz is not at his bar every single day so i am going to give him the benefit of the doubt any say that he probably didn't know…i do think that it is a good thing when a bar/club is shut down due to serving underage people, maybe more of that should happen in l.a



  24. 24

    i love angels and kings nyc!!! $2 vodka drinks whats better than that?
    i go very often and i have ALWAYS been carded, u get carded before u even go in so I'm sure the bartenders just assume every1 is of age
    and its usually 1 of the 2 regular bouncers there and they always card me and my friends, so unless some kid showed a fake ID and got alcohol poisoning or there's a new guy @ the door idk
    and in all the times i've been there not once have i seen pete wentz, so im sure he barely knows what goes on there
    cant wait til they open again so i can get my $2 vodka drinks lol



  25. 25

    i know of the girls too they always post pictures on their myspaces and facebooks drinking at angels and kings and getting other underaged people in as well..they dont even get proofed they just walk in because they are internet famous for knowing and/or fucking those bands.



  26. 26

    i always go out in alphabet city and let me tell you I've never once been in that fucking shit hole the place is crawling with 16 year olds who are lined up outside to get in. Everybody waiting to get in looks like they are 16!! w/e 16 year olds have to drink somewhere i'm just saying avoid this place if you dont wanna be barfed on by drunk tots.



  27. 27

    I'm sure he didn't knew



  28. 28

    I dont think that he really needs this on his plate right now. But some how I think that it was known that this was going on, but normally people do keep their mouths shut when a good thing like this is happening in their court. Who knows.



  29. 29

    Oh he knew about it- underage kids were constantly being let in, even when he was there!



  30. 30

    Whether he knew about his employee giving out alcohol illegally or not, its always going to be the owners fault for not tightening security and hiring responsible adults.



  31. 31

    nooo that place is bomb!



  32. 32

    UHMMM WHY DOES THE WRITING LOOK LIKE IT WAS DONE BY A 7 YR OLD?



  33. 33

    I doubt very seriously that he knew what was going on because 99% of the time the "celebrity operated" establishments are NOT operated by the celebrities themselves. That said; he should have kept tabs on whoever was running the place and letting underage kids in the bar.



  34. 34

    blame it on danielle, nicole, and brynn
