Cafe closes doors due to paranormal activity

A cafe in San Antonio has closed up shop after its owners captured something unusual on camera.
The On Live Hall of Fame Cafe, which opened back in November, had proven quite a hit with customers thanks to its enticing retro style and focus on old-school food and music.

On Thursday however, its owners took the unexpected decision to close its doors after they were spooked by a seemingly inexplicable occurrence caught on one of the cafe's CCTV cameras.

In the video, which can be viewed below, a barricade can be seen suddenly collapsing on its own.

"We are closed today to make sure everyone is safe," said co-owner April Ward. "I still get chills, my husband won't come in here. It's weird, it's crazy."

When the couple first discovered that the barricade had been knocked over, they initially believed that someone had broken in and had been prowling around the cafe. It wasn't until they checked the security footage that they realized the barricade had fallen down on its own.

The cafe will remain closed until a satisfactory explanation for the phenomenon can be found.

People are always going to believe what they wish. Even though this was nothing more than a way to draw in more business. They really should've waited till October.

Just a little update: Closed 21st June. Reopened 26th June after posting image to their Facebook page on 25th June claiming that ‘Leading Paranormal Experts have deemed our ghostly visitor to be friendly! Stop by and join the fun!’ 02 July posted a photo of a City of San Antonio Metropolitan Health District Health Safety Report dated the 26th of June. The photo had a comment with it claiming that they forgot to post it earlier due to the ghostly activity. Convenient.  So it seems that the only thing dangerous to the guests would have been food health and safety related...  Edit: They did score... [More]

The majority of us knew it was nothing but a stunt. Not surprised in the least. What a load of crap.
