Trupianos, Operators of the Defunct Club Lure, Relaunch With New Bar, New Attitude
|New venture, new tone for the Trupianos.|
What's interesting here is the humble and gracious tone they've set public relations-wise. Here's their spokeswoman, Alice Prince, talking to the Post-Dispatch last week:
Whoa. That's a far cry from how they sounded back in July.
"The club owners (the Trupiano family/TCF LLC) brought me in to say, 'We made a mistake,' ... and to help manage, let the public know this time they're going to follow all the rules," Prince says. "We want people to party and be safe."
Here's Prince yesterday, speaking with KSDK Channel 5:
Now, the Trupianos aren't out of the woods yet, legally speaking; they're still appealing the decision made by the City in September to revoke their liquor license. In the meantime, the siblings seem to be hoping that all parties forgive and -- yes -- forget.
"We want to work with the necessary community partners with the downtown task force, the mayor's office and anybody we can to solve the problem....We are not looking at who to blame or who's at fault, we are more proactive with solving problems."
