Re: “Review of review of review. Sneed stirs it up and we get a spankin.

Here is a good one.

Sonny who owns the Fan House restaurant on the corner of Floyd and Robinson would like to put a patio in front of his restaurant, which should be between him and the neighbors across and down the street.

But the Fan District Association (FDA) gets involved and guess who is the board member who is Chair of the zoning and ABC enforcement committee? None other than Charlie Diradour who owns the building that is occupied by the restaurant Buddy's, which happens to have a patio, just three blocks down at Robinson and Stuart.

Now Sonny stands no chance as the FDA (Fraud District Association) gives money to the Councilman Charles so he can be elected so he will role over like a puppy dog and expose his genitals like the whore he is and tell his fellow council members do this for me and I'll do yours for you.

It may be that the neighbors don't want the patio but that decision has been removed form them through a political circumvention of democracy.

The kicker is that just a few blocks away at Main and Strawberry Charlie Diradour owns the building that is home to the restaurant Delux, which does not have a variance for a patio, but sure enough there is a patio behind the building. Equipped with a gas fire place and has access form the restaurant, now how did that get there Charlie?? Not even an attempt to be discreet.

The corruption flows from generation to generation and those who inherit get and those who don't inherit don't get.

Ahh the sweet smell of corruption how appetizing.

Good morning;
As you all know the Fan House hearing is coming up next week, Monday June 13 at City Council. I would like the following message to go to all our members via email blast tomorrow.

ALERT! Membership: Fan District Association

Recently, your board took a position regarding the request of the property lessee at 2526 Floyd Ave., also known as The Fanhouse. This position was to oppose the requested amendment to the existing special use permit. The history of The interaction by and between your board and The Fan House has been lengthy, with meetings with both the Board and the Zoning committee that created no movement by the lessee toward a resolution that would have avoided the hearing before City Council.

Therefore, we, your board, ask you to attend City Council's meeting on June 13, 2011 at 6:00 pm to urge your representatives to uphold the terms of the special use permit issued in 1988 to Nick Kafanteris when he built Vendalia.

Numbers count! Please take the time to be at city council June 13 at 6:00 pm.

Questions regarding this request should be forwarded to Charlie Diradour, Chair of the zoning and ABC enforcement committee at


Charlie Diradour
2206 Monument Ave.
Richmond, VA
