You Say Goodbye, I Say Hello

Dry your tears, you downtrodden Dionysians: it seems that La Negrita may not be closing, after all.

In a message sent to members of La Negrita’s Facebook group, bar manager Jared Cardon says the bar “got it’s [sic] 11th hour reprieve and will stay open.”

Details are few, but the a new “Partner/Manager” named Eric will take over operations beginning Sunday. Confirmation of this Facebook message is pending—calls to the bar today have not been returned but the full text of the message is after the jump.

UPDATE (5:50 PM):
Bwog confirms with Jared Cardon that the bar will indeed remain open.

Well everyone it looks like the bar got it’s 11th hour reprieve and will stay open.

But I’ll be leaving as manager after Saturday so please if you get the chance stop by this weekend and say goodbye.

The new Partner/Manager Eric will be taking over on Sunday. He is pretty enthusiastic about coming into the La Negrita community.

Thank for a good (if short) run-

    1. now there's a man... says:

      @now there's a man... …who knows how to get right to the important questions. (or woman.)

  • Thank says:

    @Thank God.

  • sad / happy says:

    @sad / happy jared was cool … sad he is departing but happy that there is a nice little watering hole for those lacking IDs (hopefully the new management will retain the same ID policies)

    1. ... says:

      @... either you don’t like underage people hanging out in the bar or you’re incredibly thick. i’m not sure which.

      1. huh says:

        @huh that didn’t make any sense

        he/she said they’re happy there’s still a place for people with no ids, as in happy underage people can still have fun

        gosh I hate bwog commenters

        1. actually says:

          @actually it did make sense: why would you mention the laxness on bwog? the cu administration already reads it, so obviously anyone who mentions it is begging for their carding procedures to be stricter.

  • ... says:

    @... I am pretty glad that the new manager is pretty enthusiastic about coming to this pretty good bar.

  • wait says:

    @wait you mean ANYONE can read what I say on a PUBLIC blog? no way!

  • yes says:

    @yes they are – i just called them, drink us dry event is still going on… perhaps without the intensity as was previously thought

  • Have Your Say

    What should Bwog's new tagline be?
