Trouble at North Star

Postby semicolin » Mon Nov 13, 2017 9:03 pm

Logged into my Facebook to see this statement from the bar.

Hoping everyone involved will be well. It's shocking when news like this comes out about someone we consider a friend. I don't know details; I'm not sure that I want to.

Please take care of yourselves, and each other.

If they wanted you to know, they would have told you in the facebook message.
He is being ejected for something that happened 10 years ago.
It could be something that endangered their liquor license.

I'll tell you what, posting that esoteric message definitely didn't help people's curiosity.

Why saying anything if they don't want it to be known ?

Anyway, it has nothing to do with us (I hope), if I am wrong, please feel free to pm me.

I assume Adam's absence would have been noticeable to any regular of the North Star.
The same gossip would happen if they tried to keep it quiet or not.
I am sure they told us as much as they could without damaging his reputation.
Like I said, I don't know shit and I've given up trying to know more.
P.S. I'm still curious if anybody finds out more :wink:

Regardless of the PERSONAL situation, the fact remains that North Star goes on. And that is extremely important. It is Montreal's pinball lighthouse. It is more than a simple bar... it is a symbol. It is part of the light that fights the darkness which is forgotten obsolescence.

Hopefully, all ends well. And I believe that out of respect for both parties involved here, it is best that we don't speculate on anything that has happened. Nothing will be gained by doing so. So instead, I rather wish the best to both parties and hope things get better.
