The bar across the street from the one I manage closed last night. They cited COVID-19, but they haven't been profitable for years. It's hard to explain that concept to people, since they were always packed to the brim during weekends, baseball season, soccer season and playoffs, but that's what happens when your staff gives away the house night after night and you constantly buy out your distributor's warehouse beer inventory and just sit on it.

Still, we all (the bars around here) had a good neighborhood thing going on before the pandemic, and it's been rocked. Now the dust is settling and a lot of places are learning the hard way that their management should've read a P&L every once in a while. Of course this isn't true of every spot that is closing after the pandemic, but it's often the case early in this new era of mass closures.

I don't really know the moral of the story here if you're a consumer? I guess I'd say the best thing for anyone to do right now is get to know their local dying restaurants and bars real well, learn how they operate, how the treat their staff, and give your money to the ones that deserve to die a noble death. Let the shit shows crash and burn and don't let 'em fool you into thinking it was just about COVID-19.



...on that note, my regular coffee shop was subletting in one of this bar's leased areas and they closed overnight along with the bar. That one hurts. I will miss them and their staff dearly.

I enjoyed reading this post. You SHOULD do short stories.
