Chuck Schumer, Sheldon Silver, Cuomo 1 and 2, Destito,Griffo, Roefaro, Arcuri, Clinton, Patacki, Spitzer, Peterson, Palmeri. Public service unions, teachers unions and the welfare overhang.

You know the usual liberal fkn gassholes that have been running the state straight into the fkng ground for the last 25 years. Good luck! Keep voting liberal fkng democrats and the same 3 rerun yootica schill repukes a few more decades maybe you can devolve to produce just downs syndrome kids to work in the prisons and hospitals there! Dad always told us stay at least 170 miles away from yoootica if you can help it and don't show them anything shiny or of value they will attack you for it sooner or later.

Because obviously Uticans don't know how to support a local business unless pizza and cocaine are involved.

IDK why the Cage is closing but I can tell you why most new businesses do not make it. You need financing for at least a year for operating expences. Have to be in it for the long run. And a business plan. This type of business needs to be pro-active in search of customers. Maybe the person/people with the deep pockets are using their money on something that makes money now instead of betting on a business that is easy to lose control of and would not be successful without a returning clientel.

Matt Bomer or whatever his name was did not know how to run a restaurant. What is it, 90% of new businesses fail in the first year? You have to know what you're doing in terms of attracting clientele and how to handle money and staff.

It's too bad because this and Piers & Blake are nice places. They just had dumb-as-f*ck people operating them.

I agree. The American Dream is not the American Reality. Having a good idea and ambition are not enough to make a business successful. It takes money, real money. Business is a rough game. Why do you think there are entire universities devoted to teaching it.

besides matt hamill doesn't have enough groupies to support that place. Poor management, food, and staff. 2 out of 3 of those reasons is also why he was not so sucessful in the UFC. Not a hater at all either. Just my opinion.

But you're the biggest loser that has to pretend something in order to have anything to say keep proving how desperately you hate hearing about your sad situation. You aren't bothering me retard you are helping me thanks! And if you don't like being called a down correctiontard try to do something with your life beyond what your sad environment hands you. Mad because you don't like being told about your pathetic needyt self? When you pay your cable and communications off 3 months ahead of time call me on your obama phone pissant.

Earn the name loser, get cal;led loser. Don't cry. Remember how much you failures amuse those of us who moved out and don't have to pay your worthless fat asses anymore. Now run along to your prison welfare job, do you beat inmates too because you're so emotionally stable? LOOOL! Look at any of them, sooner or later they all get exposed for what parasites they are. Enjoy!

You opine is wrong. He's tired of it, money is no problem. Just go ask him this isn't some big shame. Not everyone is permanently programmed to fail. Some do fine remember!

Lunch? Yeah right, they didnt open on weekdays and Sat. until 4. There is no lunch for "the best damn burgers period"
Only being open at 12:30 on Sunday wont cut it.
How can you not be open on Saturdays by 11am? That is when you get a lunch crowd of your demographic crowd of young men.

btw - you can get a Dressed burger with fries for $8, that's comparable to many places in Albany, Cuse and Rochester that are the same type sports bar.

Poor business model and lack of knowledge regarding the food service business. You also have to do a HUGE business if you are not going to be open for lunch. That was a bad business decision.

"So the rumors are true. After much consideration we have decided to close down The Cage. This will be our last weekend in operation so stop by for some incredible drink specials as we will be trying to get rid of everything. We cant thank everyone enough for making The Cage the awesome place its become and supporting it over the last year and a half. We've made some incredible new friends, had great times with our old friends and we will never forget out time at The Cage. Hope to see everyone stop by this weekend to say farewell."
