HOUSTON, TX – In Houston, viral video footage showed a local club called Spire and what appears to be hundreds of maskless partiers in the crowd at a Lil Baby concert.
Management from the club released a statement saying, “We get visited by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission and Fire Marshall almost every night we are open and follow the rules doing our best. Once Lil Baby started to perform, people got out of their seats and rushed towards the front area, so we had to cut the concert short.”
According to the TABC, Spire has had its liquor license suspended twice since the start of the pandemic. The club is now under investigation for non-compliance issues.
Mayor Sylvester Turner now plans to make pop up visits at local bars and restaurants to ensure they are following the COVID-19 regulations and guidelines. From there he will decide if a curfew will be enforced.
