Quarterdeck (Which Wasn't Really a Quarterdeck) Closes in SoBe
|Ben Wagman's farewell|
Frank seemed surprised that the Alton branch was closed; I was surprised to learn that he and Flanigan had nothing to do with this Quarterdeck (except at one point "a long time ago"). It was being run by "an outside guy that's not part of our group," says Zaffere. "We challenged him, he lost his case. They were supposed to rename it and never did. Now he's gone."
I asked "Is he gone?"
Frank: "We have no idea what he's doing."
After that conversation I went by to check things out a little closer and saw the closed sign from Ben Wagman, the proprietor. The SoBe Quarterdeck, counterfeit or not, is, officially, no more.
