CHICAGO (WBBM) – The owners of a Chicago nightclub say they’ve terminated their relationship with an outside vendor who denied access to a number of Chicago Bears players Monday night.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports the owners of the Angels and Kings club in the 700 block of North Clark Street say they’ll apologize to all involved.
They say they take the incident very seriously and will investigate what happened.
According to the Sun-Times, the group included Brian Urlacher, Hunter Hillenmeyer, Israel Idonije, Corey Wootton, Garrett Wolfe, Pisa Tinoisamoa, Danieal Manning, Khalil Bell, Henry Melton, Barry Turner, J’Marcus Webb, Craig Steltz, Anthony Adams, Frank Omiyale, Earl Bennett, D.J. Moore, Devin Aromashodu, Rashied Davis, Nick Roach, Lance Briggs, Corey Graham, Desmond Clark, Chris Harris, Tim Jennings, Brandon Manumaleuna and other teammates.
The Sun-Times reports no reason was given for not allowing the group to go inside.
The paper quotes a spokeswoman for Angels and Kings: “Every Monday night, operations of the bar are turned over to an outside vendor who hosts special events. We understand that this Monday night, members of the Chicago Bears were not admitted to the venue. We have terminated our relationship with the outside vendor. We take these allegations very seriously, will continue to investigate the facts and will apologize to those individuals who were involved.”
