The chief may get to test those words later when the sold out Barstool Blackout Tour comes to the venue.
The tour was expected to be at the bar Wednesday.
"Due to recent events and circumstances beyond our control in the Towson area this show will have to be postponed until a later date," promoters said on a statement on their website. Promoters linked to a local story about a brawl outside Recher Theater Sunday that resulted in a number of arrests.
The event was still listed Tuesday night on Recher's website. Promoters wrote that the bar would offer full refunds and promised to return to the area.
"Either way we will be back once this whole thing blows over," the website statement read. "Sorry. Just a case of real bad timing."
Brian Recher, one of the owners of the bar, was not available for comment, a spokesman said Tuesday.
"They're sold out and that's the difference," Hafford said. "I think (Recher) will do everything in their power to ensure that nothing like this happens again."
Earlier this year, an event in New Jersey put on by the same promoter—described by the New York Post as a "destructive roving dance party"—resulted in arrests and nearly two dozen people being taken to the hospital.
Elise Armacost, a police department spokeswoman, could not comment on the planned event for Wednesday. She said police are maintaining a presence in the area regardless.
"We are going to maintain an enhanced presence downtown while this investigation continues and then determine the steps we'll take in the future," Armacost said.
The police investigation could result in the county taking action against the bar that could include penalties of a fine, suspension or revocation of its liquor license.
