But while Sac commended the response of Lake in the Hills police at first, she now finds herself at odds with the town itself.Last week, Sac received a letter from a lawyer representing the village who said that officials are “concerned that there appears to be an entertainment event” advertised on the business’ Facebook page.The letter further said that the strip mall where the cafe is located is not zoned for entertainment, but nobody seemed to have an issue before the drag brunch debacle.“Should the village become aware of any entertainment events continuing to be advertised at the UpRising Bakery and Cafe location, it will pursue appropriate enforcement actions,” the letter said, threatening fines of up to $750 per day and the suspension or revocation licenses.In the video posted to social media, Sac said she’s now been forced to cancel a Disney karaoke event and a very raucous-sounding resume writing workshop.“There was a concern for how much resources we are taking from village,” Sac said.
