Bug-A-Boo Bay is closed again.

The Alexandria restaurant closed last Wednesday morning and about 50 workers are out of a job, according to Shannon Bracey, front of the house manager at Bug-A-Boo Bay.


Equipment was hauled out of the restaurant and returned to vendors.

The decision to close came two days after a city council motion to allow Alexandria bars to serve alcohol until 2 a.m. failed when no one seconded it.
