Typical response Bob. Blame anyone or everything and deflect attention away from the people who created the problem. The management of BBC.

This is too bad! Now all the rowdy BBC customers are drinking at Cafe Borrone and they yell as if they were in a bar. Very unpleasant.

Typical yuppie/upscale people whining about loud people in a bar. Gee, get a life or move out of town. Sad to hear BBC closing

Were they just following protocol to close the place?

Thirty years ago, my then-boyfriend took me to the BBC on a date. Back then, it was an impressive and somewhat upscale place. Within five years, it had begun its downside into what it would soon become, evidenced by young men of questionable attire, appearance, and reputation hanging out there.

Best to start over from scratch, with a new name and a new game.
