River Run to become a red light district

Vic Gianatano, Keystone

The impression that I get from reading the article Nov. 29 about changes at Keystone is that Keystone management intends to turn River Run into the red light district of the Rockies.

With the “hot girl and guy bartenders” featuring upside-down shots complete with a spin in a barber’s chair as well as shots, luges and belly button shots, it appears that the intent is to use collegelike binge drinking and promiscuous sexual conduct to improve the Keystone business position.

The Parrott Eyes is being located in the landmark Silvermill building. Silvermill houses 91 condominiums and five commercial properties.

The vacancy rates for Keystone-managed condominiums are very high. I guess Keystone management could reduce the vacancy rate by renting the condos by the hour.

I think it is ironic to publish a plan, based on promoting sex and irresponsible liquor management the day before World AIDS Day. Do you think that there could be a connection?

I wonder if the Board of County Commissioners takes plans as described in the article into account when it considers applications for the Parrot Eyes and Green Light liquor licenses?

Do the county and Vail Resorts consider the effects of promoting excessive drinking on the community safety and traffic safety?

The idea of having a continuous spring break shows an immature mentality and indifference to Keystone property owners and resort guests.

During spring break, the mountain is unmanageable and property is damaged by vandalism and the careless use of rental property and the buildings that house the rental property.

I doubt that the business projected will materialize, but the plan does demonstrate the maturity of the Keystone management team and the reason why the Keystone Resort and Keystone property values have deteriorated under Vail ownership.

As a property owner, I feel that the best thing that could happen to my property value is for Vail Resort to sell Keystone.
