GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – The Michigan Liquor Control Commission has announced when The B.O.B.’s liquor license suspension will go into effect, following two failed appeals on the establishment’s behalf.

The B.O.B. will have to stop serving alcohol on July 4 and will not be able to resume selling it until July 14, the LCC ordered.

Thursday, Kent County Circuit Court Judge George S. Buth ruled that the LCC made no error in its decision to suspend The B.O.B.’s liquor license for 10 days following the 2013 death of patron Kevin O’Brien.

Attorneys for the B.O.B. — which can stay open and serve food during the suspension period — said they will fight the ruling.
