Is downtown BR going back to a ghost town?
I just saw that Magpie Cafe is closing their doors Friday. I was down there last weekend, saw Lucy’s was closed, and some other store fronts closed up.
Is it going back to the downtown BR of the 80’s?

It’s because Kip isn’t Mayor anymore. Kip was revitalizing downtown. The current Mayor is retarded.

BR mayor cracked down on open containers there to screw with a few bars owned by a political rival.

It will be over soon.

I've heard them starting to enforce the open container laws on 3rd street kind of killed the momentum that area had.

I don't spend a whole lot of time in bars at this point so I'm not sure if that's the case.

Well Broome sucks at attracting business. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Yeah the current major is atrociously bad. She’s basically against improving the city.

In short, yes. Was down there last weekend and it was a ghost town with the exception of The Watermark which was having a high school reunion. Sad.

Good thing we built a multi gazillion dollar public library though.

The one downtown is closing. They still have the overpass location and one other location.

It’s curious that this happens isn’t it. I didn’t see it coming at all.

Downtown is always dead during the summer. It’s a college town. I thought they’ve been doing well with live@5 and other music events down there. Need to close shittybar

Blame white proggies. They ruin everything. Elected a buffoon of a carpetbagger and destroyed all the progress that had been made.


Can we recall her and bring back Kip?

They need to allow people to walk around with drinks.
