    There is no indication that anything ever went up for sale or that ownership changed hands. I don't think the gas station is the same, but I cannot confirm that. I believe the liquor license may have been what was specifically being leveraged against the restaurant.

    Board of health violations. I rode out there 3 weeks ago and saw the "closed" signs. I am riding out there today to see the reopening progress ( I have heard there are remodeling plans). I'll repost when I get back this afternoon. Dodging the Dorian blues.

    I just returned from my trip down there. All of the violations have been corrected. The hold up now is the city of Weston needs to repermit/inspect the septic tank refurbish. Cafe 27 and the truck stop were there long before Weston even existed. With the Labor day weekend and Hurricane Dorian ( that never happened) Weston's building department was "too busy" to certify the repairs for the grand reopening that would have taken place this weekend ( Labor Day weekend). This is from the horse's mouth. Not Facebook rumors. Had a couple of Coor's Lights from the adjacent Service Station/Subway/Truck stop store and shot the shit with some people. Nothing stopping riders from showing up.

    Just would have been cool to give the employees a little notice.

    management had no notice. That is how sanitation/ health inspections work. "Here's your 20 violations, everyone go home ..... now.

    Except a bunch of people showed up to a closed place with no explanation. Could have called employees.

    Are they reopening with a new staff? Many of the long time staff members also never heard that it was to reopen.

    Nothing to get. A phone call is easy peasy and common courtesy. Just a little heads up to the dedicated staff either about the closing or reopening would have been a nice gesture don't you think? :thumb

    Anyway it seems like a strange thing to get bothered by if you aren't an owner. Take it easy man.
