OP Is Now Closed...

To My Outpost Family -

I have been receiving emails from people noticing that the OutPost is being physically moved and wondering if I was a part of that.   First of all, it is no longer “The OutPost” it is now just a building.  As most of you know, the owner of “the building,” is moving the “building” to the corner of the lot which he still owns a strip of.  His plan is supposedly to remodel and open a family oriented restaurant.  I am in NO WAY a part of that.  On the other hand, the people who bought the “land” and are opening a gas station on the corner have been so helpful and cooperative, and I wish them great success. So...there you have it....I hope this clears this up for everyone.

Update - 8pm January 15, 2010

The OutPost Is Closed

Unfortunately, the owners of the land parcel upon which the OutPost Tavern sits have accelerated the “closing date” by changing the door locks on January 14, 2010.  This was completely unexpected and I am sorry for our friends who had planned parties throughout the month.  We will release another statement soon to all of our OP Friends….”
