SAD NEWS, INDEED
I just got home from work and read my e-mail. As I opened a message from David Lee of the Sports Bar I could do nothing but stare at the words on my screen, my mouth agape. Surely this was a prank, a bad joke. But no, the news is confirmed on his blog and it is sad news, indeed.
The Sports Bar is officially closed. There is no need for speculation because he gives all the information he needs/chooses to give on his blog.
I, for one, know that it will be sorely missed. Not only was the Bar a great place to mingle, chill and relax, but David himself made sure you were having a good time. He is not only full of Southern charm, but he's from the old-school of thought that "everybody is somebody". Whenever you entered the bar it was like going home to grammas' house. All the children were treated equally.
I'm so glad I had the opportunity to sit and have lunch with David at Villars on my last trip. If I learned anything from that experience it's that he is down-to-earth and loves people. He also strikes me as someone who is quite resilient. Having said that, I'm sure we've not seen the last of Mr. Lee.
David, here's to you, kid!
