I heard this news from Marty Lush this morning! I certainly hope that someone is maintaining the fishtanks during all of this! Has anyone peeked in and checked?
Look, as I've posted before (in the Bahooka thread), we were all so darn lucky to have Bahooka for nearly fifty years. The owners were ready to retire and got an offer they couldn't refuse.
Let's not sugar coat this tough pill to swallow. The place was on the market for one day. ONE DAY Before the asking price was met and the ball started rolling. I fully expect it to be bought up and turned into a parking lot, as one potential buyer wanted it for.
You do realize, if you paid attention tot he Bahooka thread, that they pretty much gutted the place out already of the unique design and booths. Someone went over during Easter weekend and took photos of them tearing down some of the old design. The fish tanks are currently empty.
All I'm saying is that the family, about to retire, could have probably found another buyer who, at the very least, wouldn't have used this as some method to make a quick buck off the property.
I think that's what gets me. If another restaurant was put in there by this new owner, it would have been better than some flipper coming in, paying the basic that the family neede
Edit: I guess this is just a kick while down because not only did they take away a tiki icon, but they it's clear they didn't even want the building in itself as they only saw that there was a profit to be made by flipping the damn thing.
That's what really stings about this.
