Pre-Christmas jitters were sent out around town last night when one of the most popular Perimeter road bars, Fire Pit, was raided. The charges haven't been formalized, but word about town is that the bar is being accused of human trafficking which is really hard to believe.
In all, about 3 dozen total employees were taken away.
The Fire Pit Sports Bar next door remains open, and the bar itself runs more than one shift so perhaps its only a matter of time before they are fully operational again. ($$$?)
Let's hope it gets taken care of for all parties involved, and that no one has to sit in a jail cell for any extended period of time.
Raids had all but died down in the past several months, so keep your fingers crossed that this is an isolated incident that can be resolved quickly!
