I’m sure you’ve all been to the Ruby at some point – even if you didn’t know what the club name was. Maybe it was for Clockwork Orange on Fridays, or Bang on Saturdays, or my favorite Perversion on Thursdays. But now, the club’s permit is up for renewal, and they need public support to ensure that it happens. The club is in CD13, which is Eric Garcetti’s turf, so I’m confident that his benevolent reign will protect the Ruby. However, it can’t hurt to get the word out. Behind the cut is more info on how you can show some support – beyond, of course, showing up and signing the petition on your way into a club night this week.
As some of you may have heard, the Ruby is going through their permit renewal process. This is something standard that all clubs eventually have to do. For the next few weeks we are going to ask for your help. Every night as you enter the venue you will be asked to sign a petition in support of the club. The more signatures we get the better. We are also asking you to send the letter below to Eric Garcetti and several other city officials to show your support for the club. Thanks For Your Help

Dear Councilman Garcetti:
Re: The Diamond Club and Restaurant (Applicant Okefenokee, Inc.), at 7070 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90028
I live or frequent the Diamond Club and Restaurant in Hollywood. The Diamond Club is a wonderful restaurant and entertainment venue that has been operated by the same management for many years.
I understand that the Diamond Club and Restaurant (applicant Okefenokee, Inc.) has applied to the City for the City’s approval to continue operating at 7070 Hollywood Boulevard as it has done for the last 19 years. The Diamond Club has been a responsible reputable server of food and alcoholic beverages, and provider of entertainment, for many years at this location, and I am sure that The Diamond Club will continue to be responsible and reputable in the future.
I desire the convenience and necessity and entreatment that the Diamond Club provides in a safe setting. The Diamond Club is beneficial to the community. I fully support the Diamond Club, and I strongly urge all governmental agencies involved in the application and permitting process to make all necessary approval to allow this use to continue.
Very truly yours
