Concerned neighbor

Spyce is not a nice restaurant . It is a club that brings trouble every weekend since they opened .
People are completely intoxicated In The street every weekend, including Sunday’s after all you can drink brunch .
Fights almost every weekend, broken glass bottles from people drinking in their cars before they go in.
