St. Paul Pioneer Press | 02/14/2007 | Popular Burnsville sports bar closes

St. Paul Pioneer Press 02/14/2007 Popular Burnsville sports bar closes:
"The loss of the restaurant is having a ripple effect throughout the city. Youth athletes from Burnsville Hockey Club, who raised funds by selling pull-tabs there, are looking for new fundraising options at other businesses, said club president Dan Schroeder.
'Benchwarmer Bob's was a significant partner of the hockey club for 13 years,' he said. 'It will have an impact. '
It's too early to tell how badly the closing will hurt the club, Schroeder said. He wouldn't say how much the club raised annually at the restaurant, except that it was the 'primary spot' for fundraising. The group sells pull-tabs at two other locations."
