Jeebus. Brandon Backe is seriously breaking my heart. And it's because of this post in the Houston Press by Richard Connelly, in which we find out that Backe's Bullpen has closed - before I had a chance to visit the family and belly up to the bar:
(Linking to the Fan Page on Facebook) This is what I found: Apparently, some woman had an accident last week with a child in her car and she told the police that she had just left Backe's Bullpen ... and the rest is history... Backe's was told to either pay a fine or surrender their liquor license so they closed the bar. I wonder what the building will be next??
Connelly notes this can't be confirmed, though throughout the rest of the post, it sounds reasonable.
