What's the scoop on Bar Minnow?

The last posting here implied that the Board of Health closed Bar Minnow because it failed an inspection, but that's not what the DOH website says. According to their website, Bar Minnow was inspected on 10/20/2006 and received a score of 4, which is actually a very low (meaning good) score. Anything under 28 is a passing score.

It kind of boggles the mind that the owners had a thriving restaurant business next door and then ran it totally into the ground when they opened the bar. My wife and I stopped in a couple of times over the summer and it seemed obvious to us that they were going to close: on each visit they were out of most of the wines that were listed on their wine menu, on one visit the televisions were gone, etc...

It was almost like they wanted to fail. Really strange...
