UPDATE (08/19/14, 9:45PM)- A city council committee has denied Bigfoot's request for a packaged liquor license. The vote was unanimous.

Residents close to the Bigfoot Gentlemen's Club on South Alpine are complaining about about the amount of garbage found outside of the late-night venue.

"We found drug paraphernalia," says David McCue, a neighbor. "We found alcohol bottles from beer to wine to hard liquor and quite frankly we're just getting tired of it."

McCue has lived near South Alpine for 33 years and said he does not want the city to give Bigfoot a license to sell packaged liquor.  "We just think packaged liquor is just going to add to the litter, because [there will be] more partying after hours and just we don't need it. There's packaged liquor sales right around the corner in three different locations," said McCue. "Everyday of the week they're open till 2 O'clock. I've had to call police because people out there been noisy. They wake me up."

McCue's wife, Diane, is an administrator for a Neighborhood Watch group on Facebook. She has been trying to rally residents to voice their concerns at the upcoming liquor hearing.  "When it spills out in the parking lot it affects me, it affects my neighbors, it affects our neighborhood, it affects property values and our quality of life," said McCue.

We contacted Bigfoot but they declined our request for an interview.
