the bob website graphicGRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (July 2, 2014) — The B.O.B. will accept a 10-day liquor license suspension, the venue said in a statement Wednesday.

The Michigan Liquor Control Commission’s suspension begins the Fourth of July and runs through Sunday, July 13.

“We feel strongly that this is an injustice to our staff of 220, their families and all of our guests that have been affected by this MLCC decision,” a statement from The B.O.B. said.

Initially, the B.O.B. received a three-day suspension for liquor violations in the death of Kevin O’Brien.  O’Brien was one of three people in recent years who fell and died in a stairwell at the venue.

The B.O.B. was given a 10-day suspension after appealing that initial ruling.  They appealed again, but the 10-day suspension was upheld by a Kent County judge.

Though the venue will be closed on the Fourth of July, a wedding and reception are still being held there, but no liquor will be served.  Read more about that here.
