Guzzling Ghosts Haunt Restaurant

PASADENA, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Beer-guzzling ghosts are getting the party started at a haunted restaurant.

The Holly Street Bar & Grill in Pasadena, California, is a favorite haunt of locals and a few spirit-loving spirits, who have been raiding the liquor cabinet after hours.

Restaurant owner Lexanne Bridges explains, “I’ll leave for the night, and I’ll have set everything up for the next day. Then in the morning, some of the beer will be gone. It’s kind of bizarre.”

Bridges attributes the alcoholic hauntings to the building’s history as a mortuary and as a speakeasy, which she thinks also explains why most of the trouble starts after midnight.

The late night dead drinkers often get rowdy in the restaurant, playing the piano, throwing bottles off shelves, and locking people in the bathroom.

But not all the trouble is being blamed on the ghosts.

Bridges says the restaurant staff has never tried to point the finger at the ghosts for their own bad behavior.
