Batteries Not Included was a bar/venue from August of 1985 to about 1994 or 1995. They put on a fair amount of punk shows during its run. The owner of BNI (who Ben Weasel called "s paranoid freak who was a dead ringer for Eddie Murphy"), changed the name to Chez Delphonse in the mid 90s - Chez adopted a Carribean theme and stopped booking shows. After Chez Delphonse the bar became it's current name/location, Flounders Bar and Grill, in 1999.
