A reader was curious and decided to simply ask the owner what was going on (what a novel idea!):
I noticed there was some discussion about LBC on the board. I went there today and the owner (Bu Lee) told me she bought the place from Sang and Soo Choi December, 2011! This is no "recent" management change. Bu is a young Korean woman - perhaps readers are assuming all Asian women look alike. But the liquor license is back and in full swing. Stop by and talk to Bu for the details.We haven't been there in a couple of months, but last time we were there all seemed well to us. Food was good, service was good, liquor was on the shelf and the world was fine.
(Hat tip: JK!)
