Thought we could all talk about the small business causalities from the pandemic and the GOP's fucked up handling of all this...

First off, Fuck you, Republicans.

A bar and live music venue in downtown Dubuque has permanently closed, citing COVID-19 as the driving factor in the decision.

Officials from The Blu Room, 600 Central Ave., announced on social media that the venue “will remain closed for good.” The business was known as Breezers Pub prior to its current name.

The post alluded to the short-term problems caused by the novel coronavirus and suggested that a return to normalcy “may not happen for a very long time.”

“We are still unwilling to get people together, in such a confined space, with only the hope of no transmission of this virus,” the post read. “I’ve exhausted all my options in trying to stay afloat.”

Yeah this was a nice place and I had friends who played this venue in Dubuque...

A friend and I ate here when we were at a convention in Spokane. We've talked about how we want to go back and explore the city more. We likes the food. Sadly, we will no longer be able to eat at Rocky Rococos.

After more than 35 years in downtown Spokane, Rocky Rococo Pizza and Pasta is closing permanently, effective Friday.

“The challenges of operating a business are never ending. Rocky Rococo-Spokane has been up to that challenge throughout the many years we have called downtown our home,” franchise owner Lee Gibbon said in a statement. “It’s now time to step away and allow a new generation of entrepreneurs to use their energy and talent to create the next success story within the Spokane community.”

The restaurant at 520 W. Main St. had closed temporarily in April because of COVID-19.

Rocky Rococo Pizza and Pasta was founded in Madison, Wisconsin, in 1974.

This was in the May 1 Spokane newspaper.

An Iowa non profit is stopping operations because their funding dried up. 

Quote

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Iowa has announced plans to cease mentoring operations at the end of August.

Previous financial hardships, coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic, led the board to make the decision late July. Funding had been cut over the last two years by $350,000 Then, the pandemic cancelled their 2020 fundraising events and directly affected donations and applications for funding.

“We have explored every option available to us to keep our Littles & Bigs connected during the COVID-19 pandemic in safe ways. We, along with many other businesses in our service area, did not know how the virus would impact this ongoing economic crisis. This decision was extremely difficult to make but at this time we have exhausted all options, and
the decision is necessary," said Jessica Love, Board President of Big Brothers Sisters of Northeast Iowa.

A bowling alley that has served the Dubuque area for more than six decades soon will close its doors permanently. 

Creslanes Bowling Alley and Pro Shop, 255 S. Main St. in Dubuque, will close on Friday, Aug. 14, according to a press release issued by the bowling alley's owner, Crescent Electric Supply Co. 

It was older but still a nice place.  They had a by the hour rate on weekdays so I was able to get decent practice in.  There are other more modern facilities but it had a lot of the old bowling alley charm
