What? You give the name of Taco Bell for a taxi incident, but don't name the bar where a alleged rape occurs? What's with that?

Good question, Edger. I made the decision not to identify the location of the bar because we don't to identify the victim. Posting the name of the bar may just do that. Thanks for the question.
