We have called in some great musicians to send off the farewell and hope you will join us for some great entertainment, food and drinks. Again, Thank you to our customers, musicians, and staff you will all be missed!”
"So the rumors have been somewhat true. We have been trying to negotiate with the landlord to stay. We have not reached an agreement so today, barring a miracle, will be our last day in business. Whipps has been an amazing 2nd family for all of us. And it's hard to say goodbye. We wish you all health and happiness."
