A message allegedly written by Shaker's Cigar Bar owner Bob Weiss appeared on social media a few weeks ago and eventually amassed thousands of reads.

The message does not say specifically what happened to lead to the threatening message that was supposedly sent to employees in April of 2022. However part of it reads, "You should not be surprised if my Serbian or Cuban collection agents do not find you anytime/anywhere in the next year and dangle you from a tall building."

Shaker's, 422 S. 2nd St., is a cigar bar and restaurant known for its possibly haunted boutique hotel above the bar. 

At the time of posting this, Weiss did not respond to OnMilwaukee's inquiries. This article will be updated if he does.
