UPDATES: It has been confirmed that only one vehicle was stolen from Bocado last night. This according to owner Brian Lewis via a third party. Twitter user @ETK1 has also said that only one was taken! However, 3 Sets of keys were acquired by the perp(s)
Last night, while some of you probably slumbered and others of you danced the night away (and I met up with Spark Plug), several customers were robbed at Bocado. My understanding is that the thief stole the keys from the valet and then took five automobiles from the nearby lot. I’ll see what else I can find out about this,
I still have not been able to confirm exactly how the theft took place, but my understanding is still that the keys were taken from the valet stand
For someone like me who usually doesn’t care for valet service, I wonder if this will make restaurants think twice about how they employ the service. Bocado does have a parking issue in that their lot is actually a block away, and it was a Friday night, but this can’t be good news for anyone involved.
In the meantime, be careful … even over in the ever popular Westside.
