The pub was abruptly closed for 3 days last week.

 

Open again now though.

Sticky caters to an older demographic, so their sales have plummeted. This is not a closure related to a COVID outbreak.

They are also popular with the tourist crowd, and we know how that has gone.

I would not say it caters to any older crowd than say Irish Times. Does it?

I don’t know.

Yes I think it does well with tourists normally.

They’re competing for Sticky’s business, plus they bring in lots of 30-50 year olds. Sticky seems to be a 50+ hangout.

…and Games Room has become the new Boom Boom Room crowd pleaser. Not everyone’s cup of tea.

Is this something that has changed in the past few years? Many Saturday nights during the early to mid 2010s ended up at Sticky, and always remember it as mostly a younger crowd. Now, I remember the bar and dance floor at the north end of the venue often had an older crowd, but the rest of the pub and games room, far younger.

I imagine that they would also get a fair amount of "after work" business and that of course has cratered as well since 90% of people are still working from home.

As both parties were reportedly living rough/homeless, I couldn't resist the obvious cheap shot.

Gun found, charges laid in shooting near Nanaimo Parkway

Robert Allen Estes, charged with attempted murder, remains in custody

Aug. 3, 2022

A gun allegedly used in a shooting in Nanaimo on the B.C. Day long weekend has been found and a suspect has been charged with attempted murder.

According to a Nanaimo RCMP press release, Robert Allen Estes, 48, of no fixed address, has been charged with the one count of attempted murder in connection with a shooting incident that happened the afternoon of Monday, Aug. 1, near the Northfield Road intersection of the Nanaimo Parkway.

The gun was found by a team of investigators, led by Nanaimo RCMP Police Dog Services. The team searched “through a seemingly endless supply of bramble bushes” and found the sawed-off shotgun in the late afternoon on Tuesday, Aug. 2. in the vicinity of Northfield and Boxwood roads. The weapon will undergo a forensic examination.

Estes has been remanded into police custody to await his next court appearance Thursday, Aug. 11, in provincial court in Nanaimo.

The 43-year-old shooting victim, who suffered serious, life-threatening injuries, remains in hospital.

Police are continuing their investigation into the incident.
