Why Isn't Everyone Happy About the Reopening of Happy's?

Past by the corner of 79th Cottage Grove yesterday and was met by construction and the reopened Happy Liquors. I looked through all my emails and searched the Internet and I didn't notice any comments from all the CBO presidents, Alderman (Michelle Harris), and ministers who all stood up with their chest poked out claiming how bad they were because they got Happy's closed down. The reality was the closure was not due to any City of Chicago or State of Illinois Liquor license violations but rather City of Chicago building code violations.

Several weeks after the store closed I saw this lady outside the store sweeping trash. I stopped and asked her identity and she declined but did say she was hired by the building owner to sweep the sidewalk around the building. Also, it was noted that I saw two security officers patrolling the block of 79th between Cottage Grove and Drexel.

I guess we will see what happens by the end of the month when all parties are expected back in court.
