the bob website graphicGRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (June 3, 2014) — B.O.B. owner Greg Gilmore appealed the liquor license suspension his establishment faced, and lost.

The initial three-day suspension has now been lengthened to 10 days by the Michigan Liquor Control Commission (MLCC). That’s the maximum penalty.

This took place in a hearing on Tuesday.

MLCC spokesperson Andrea Miller said an establishment that appeals a ruling runs the risk of having it amended (for better or worse) by the commission.

She said the suspension will take place June 10 to June 19.

Also, there is another $300 fine for allowing an intoxicated person to loiter.¬†Originally, the B.O.B. was not found guilty of this charge. Miller said that’s the maximum fine for the ‘loitering charge.’

In the original ruling, the business had already been fined $600 for over-serving alcohol and serving to an intoxicated person.

    Should just close that shithole down, can anyone else name 1 bar in Michigan that has contributed to 4 death's in 3 years i dont ,due to gross employee incompetence and the fact they don't give a shit if you are wasted or not the bartenders need their tips really bad they would serve a drunk 5 year old at that place I can't……

  • dogsnot

    BOB has obviously realized they were getting off easy and needed to take the 3 days instead of the appeal. ouch on the books for this month……..

  • Yup

    Fuck the MLCC when is the world going to be held responsible for there actions instead we hold the hands of morons and kiss stupid peoples asses. Founding Fathers is a moron who I assume reads only beetween the lines if he can read at all. I feel sorry for the Bob and the bs they are going thru.

      Feeling sorry for the BOB, really if they attract the type of person you apparently are, judging by your use of foul language on a social website, no wonder they are in this position. Maybe the BOB needs to go back to their original practice of being highly selective of whom they allow in their doors.
      The place used to be a nice place to visit, now, it's overrun by mostly drunken patrons who really don't care how they behave or who they insult. There are many other establishments in and around Grand Rapids that have a lot more class and charge a lot less for a beverage. If you can't run a drinking establishment by following rules and the law, it's time to shut the place down. Unfortunately the people who have lost their lives should have never passed the people watching the doors……

        Sure the use of my initial word was foul but brought attention for someone that goes by name Common Sense you haven't agreed to use any I have been to the Bob 2 times both for birthday parties and both as a driver. Yes as all bars contain odd people and some that really shouldn't leave the comfort of home it is what it is. The truth of the matter is it's always the companies fault why? Someone pulls something off shelf gets on there clothes it's the stores fault? No but the state says yes WHAT big brother tho sometimes good has way 2 much power and gives stupid non responsible people a free card every time.
