    Isn't this the first step towards a socialist community when the city starts renting out facilities at a cheaper price than privately owned venues can do? Also does this also apply to Brett's Waterway Cafe since I understand they have one of those deals of the century leases from the city? Just wondering.

    This has nothing to do with creating a socialist community. These city facilities have always been available for rent to have birthday parties, retirement parties, wedding receptions and other events. This article simply lets folks know which venues are available. Now that Fernandina Beach permits alcohol at these facilities (which are less expensive likely because they are not as eloquently appointed) under certain stipulations, this gives folks more choices. THAT is what this article is about. Brett's Cafe has a lease with the city and is privately managed, so they would obviously set their own rates.

    A socialist community has nothing to do with the color of politics but more in line of a previous call you made, privateeye, in supporting your community by buying local. I believe that Joachim Stiller had no other intention than to point out that in the current meltdown of the US economy witnessed with the start of a double dip this week, will be the only form of “social behavior” that has a chance to survive the coming onslaught.

    So in essence rather then going into the defense on a political level it is a behavioral pattern that should get attention. Socialism is not politics, it is a human behavior!!!

    You should apply for a job protecting the city, dear privateeye. I'm not attacking anyone, least of all your informative article. I'm just stating that with the introduction of alcohol into the equation, city operated venues become a potential competitor to private enterprise. Good or bad is not for me to decide. In a more advanced political setting you may want to question however, how far cities should go in putting an entrepreneurial stamp on their offerings before it becomes unjust competition.
