Red Hill Tavern could open Saturday

According to Captain Larry's owner Ivars Balodis, the Red Hill Tavern, which replaced Rafters, will open this Saturday. I haven't been able to confirm this with Red Hill Tavern's owners, because they won't return my calls. I'll let you know as soon as I hear something substantial. Also -- Red Hill Tavern owners, if you're reading this, call me at 410.332.6689.

Call me!

You might want to do some more digging, the rumor on the streets is that the whole deal fell through.

Didn't Rafters just recently go up for sale? Damn they move quick! Or has this been in the works for some time?

heard someone talking in Larry's on Tuesday. Seems one of the old owners is a part of the new ownership conglomeration. Wouldn't they need to get the liquor license amended before they could open?

Word is that Rob is sticking around to help with the new venture. Seems like the Facebook page is gone ...

Facebook page is gone and there hasn't been any activity in the building since Monday. Word is that Rob and the new owner/partner had a quick falling out and the new guy packed up and left after doing a few renovations on Monday. Doesn't sound good.
