    The "primary if not sole shareholder" justified the sudden closure by telling his employees that the client's budget "was not enough to keep the lights on at One Biscayne" but clearly left plenty of $$$$ for an outrageous all expenses paid, Paris trip for his partners, secretary, closest friends, and half of Slovakia just a few days earlier!!!

    It's always "business as usual" with a multiplier of six.

    Sadly, since former BH employees no longer have access to the DBR, they will not be able to comment or read this article. With no insurance and no prospects for employment, I am sure that they are afraid and feel abandoned.
    Its a terrible thing to lose your livelihood without warning and contrary to repeated reassurances by management that all was "business as usual."
    Its especially difficult to stomach after the obscenely lavish celebration in Paris, which occurred just days before they were told to "hit the road" and probably would have funded much needed severance and insurance.
