The bar is not closing.
The Weyanoke has been for sale for six years. There have been several offers and it has yet to be passed off to a new owner so that Mr. Ken Brumfield can finally move to California and write his book. But on December 19th, the building is going up for auction.
For those of you who don’t know, nothing in real estate happens quickly. The Weyanoke is still under a lease from its current owner, and the bar is under lease from it. Ken is our landlord as he is the landlord for the ladies living in the Weyanoke. And like any lease/landlord agreement, that lease would not be broken in the middle of it.
In other words, there is no chance the girls upstairs will be homeless next semester or the bar will no longer exist.
That being said, I’ve been told that all of the highest bidders intend to keep the bar here. There is some 10% that we will close, but that is “very highly unlikely”.
This space is where the bar lives, no matter what name is has, how business is, or who owns the Weyanoke. The bar is save and we are not closing.
