Charlie's Pool Room Closed by Local Inspector Wed, 05/15/13 5:18 PM (permalink)
Just received the following email:
 
"Charlie's Pool Room in Alpha NJ was just closed by the health department and are now faced with thousands of dollars in renovation costs if they are to re-open.

They were grandfathered in for all these years but the new health inspector has decided to hold them to the letter of the current code.
Among the many renovations required are a ventilation and fire suppression system, totally remodeled kitchen, new floors through out and much more.

...

I was hoping that you might post something on your websiteas a call out to all fan’s of Charlie’s to make them aware of the dire situation. Perhaps we could inspire some volunteer help for the cleaning and painting or perhaps a mass plea to the health inspector for some leniency on the more expensive aspects of the code.Do they really need a fire suppression and ventilation system for a 12” frying pan of hot dogs?"


The person who sent me the email is trying to raise some money for Charlie's Pool Room through eBay.  He is selling a vibrating hot dog with 100 % of proceeds going to the Fencz brothers, Joe and John.  Here is the link. http://www.ebay.com/itm/S...mp;hash=item51ad05d953

Charlie's Pool Room is a special one of the kind place that has to be saved.

      Another example of how important little people think they are.

        Say it isn't so. 
        What a terrible thing to do to those nice men.
        Could a push-cart in their area serve as a legal kitchen?

          Does anyone know the address of their BOH?  Or what county it is?

            Oh No!  Say it isn't so. First Bobcat Bite and now this.  Does anyone know if they are planning on raising the money to get up to code and stay in business?  Holly is right, this place needs saved!

              Tried calling and got an answering machine, which says that CPR is closed for renovations.  The renovation part makes me hopeful.
