It's too bad the owners of the place couldn't re-open as a new version of Sneakers. It used to be that you could see any game you wanted, the staff was the best, and they always let me reserve a room to see the Packer games for friends and family. Since Sneakers went under Upland has lost a top of the line family friendly sports bar/restaurant. Let's hope an enterpreneur with vision has the same passion as those of us who loved Sneakers.

that's true, the owners really F#@!! up this joint, too bad, it could have been one of the best places to hang out in the IE. On the hand, they got what they deserve. With all crap that went down, the attempt murder, the drunks, and the fights, all that could have been prevented if the owners and managers used some common sense. You see, the problems slowly esculated from a few rowdy drunks to attempted murder. The question is: how did the problems get out of control? were the managers doing their job? where was the bouncers? The bartenders and waitresses are also share the blame. i visited the CC several times, and the service could have better, a lot better.

The problems that surfaced at Chronic Cantina come from just plain greed of owners. Similar to several years ago at Margarita Beach bar in Rancho. Owners try to make the place high volume alcohol hang out. Shooters, 2for1........thats brings fast bucks and dollars. Unfortunately it gets out of control real fast and quickly attracks the wrong clientel, which then spills over outside into the local neighborhood. Some of the best hang outs around offer drink-food at a reasonable price (I did not say cheapest) and quickly develop a loyal clientel, similar to Sneakers. When Sneakers closed I switched to a couple more smaller "neighborhood" taverns. Sorta have the Cheers" envrionment. Does not have the size and sometimes the crowd excitement, but I know there safe, will enjoy myself watching the big games, but will also leave alive.

They have an obviously drug-related name, and nobody expected trouble?

Good job closing it down, Upland.

I don't know about closing them, but cetainly clean up their act so they don't have to shut down like Chronic Cantina! Like already said, these joints try to attrack patrons by offering cheap drinks,theme nights based around drinks AND lots of alchohol,often aimed at the minimum age crowd. Many show up already buzzed before more partying. By end of night they cannot handle themselves and trouble starts. They say "drink responsibly" how about a slogan for club and bar owners, "Serve responsibly". It's the club owners that create the atmosphere and their envirnoment. Hold them responsible and limit their permits or shut them down if they can't run a reasonable business that fits in the community.

Can't eat healthy at the Fair huh?
Guess what, the Fair has always allowed you to bring in your own food. There's some great places to have a picnic if your diet does not tolerate "fair food".
Personally, I just plan my week around my visit to the fair. Eat heathly before and after my visit, and have my favorites the day I go. You just can't eat like your at the fair everyday of you life. It's all in moderation and self control. Got to reward yourself sometimes.

Look at this people!!!

Poor Francis spent so much time at the Chronic Cantina smoking the 420 that she can't even focus on what story it is that she is responding to. This in itself should make you pause and realize that a places like Chronic Cantina are damaging our youth.

Francis put the bong down and focus this is not a story about eating healthy at the fair!!

I read perfectly well what you said, but you commented on the Inland Empire as having a rough crowd and I responded that it was that way because of all the people that moved out here from L.A. Does that make sense now?
