    Barcode is constantly a problem. May be time to have the police look into shutting it down.

      Pepin Tuma, your statement is so not true. Bar Code during the week caters to the business community, only on the weekend, and Sunday nights, did it start getting out of hand. I have seen the madness (from my office on Sunday evenings) and was wondering WHEN, not IF, this was going to happen. Sad because Bar Code is a very nice restaurant/lounge. They just may need to give up this Sunday evening night club gig in order to get their good reputation back. Like gbrown stated “nothing good happens at a club on a Sunday Night.” Don’t people have to be a work Monday morning?
