Fort Lauderdale Bars to Hold Rally Protesting Forced Closures in Pandemic

Fort Lauderdale Beach is leading a rally Tuesday afternoon with one request: they want to get back to work. The “Right to Work” rally will take place at 4:30 p.m. outside the Elbo Room located on A1A.

“Casinos are open. Every restaurant with a bar is open. For some reason they are ignoring bars,” Mike Penrod, whose family bought the Elbo Room nearly four decades ago, told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Across Florida, bars were part of the Phase 2 reopenings that occurred earlier this month in all counties except Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach while locations such as some bowling alleys opened in Broward County on Monday.
