36th St. Lounge in Wyoming, MI

I've been working at this bar on & off for years (only off because it's closed down a couple times), and have heard/seen weird stuff many times. I'm not the only one, either. Many of my co-workers & some of our customers have, too.
Last week a couple of our regulars actually caught stuff (orbs) on their digital camera.
I have heard voices, weird knocking noises inside the pint cooler, a sound like a bowling ball dropping and rolling across our stage, etc.
I've also seen the apparition of a man in the basement (near where the customers took the pictures, actually). Other things that have happened to my co-workers include:
-my old boss, Juls, saw a man walk through our lobby after closing. She sent the bouncers looking through the whole building. Nothing.
-a former bartender was grabbing beers from the back cooler and was repeatedly tapped on the shoulder. Irritated, she turned to yell at someone. No one was there.
-a huge pot of spaghetti sauce upended itself while sitting flat on the floor of another cooler.
-lights turn on and off sometimes randomly (though that could be faulty wiring...).
-Once, while I was opening, someone said my name right behind me. I was the only one in the building at the time, though it was plain as day.
I found out, after having been there awhile, that a former worker was shot to death in the basement office, although people have described him, and it doesn't seem to be the man that Julz and I saw. So I wonder what else happened there...?
