SUCKS.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

Yeah, i can't tell if it's because the owners are moving or business has been bad...? I like that place, frequent it often, and they make good drinks. But when it is crowded it can take forever to get a dang drink.  But, other than that, it was a great bar and my go-to spot for after work meet-ups and happy hours.  Will be sad to see it go.

They posted on their facebook page that it is due to owner health problems...

Surely somebody could buy it and take over the lease?

Not happy  :-[
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Just saw an article on JBJ that Volstead will not be closing.  It will remain open under new ownership.
