La Copa Sports Bar holds grand opening

(Plain Press, March 2007) Young business owner Gennie Rodriguez held a grand opening ceremony for the La Copa Sports Bar this past month.

The bar, which was controversial even before it opened as neighbors opposed a request to become a nightclub, can’t seem to escape the watchful eye of neighborhood activists even online. Photos from the grand opening ceremony reportedly viewed on the La Copa MySpace site are being circulated online.

Ward 14 Councilman Joe Santiago is featured in one photo while cutting the ribbon along with owner Rodriquez. Also featured in photos are former Tremont West Development Corporation Board President Rosemary Vinci and Cleveland City Council Clerk Emily Lipovan.
