Brother Oliver's Update

A quick update on Brother Olivers. Over the weekend we were able to salvage and offer up some items for sale. You will find the famous tables from Oliver's Pub at the rockin' "On the Y" bar near Fulton and Fair Oaks.

Other equipment and goods are helping other entrepreneurs or non-profits across the area.

But, here is the most important news.

Apparently, now that Brother Oliver's is closed, the land owners are going to tear it down and build a Beverages and More on the property.

Guess we know their real motivation. They didn't care about the icon... they wanted the tenant gone so they could build something far more profitable.

As a capitalist, I support that profit motive... as a lover of great restaurants... it makes me sad.

As someone who worked and played at Brother Oliver's, I get a feeling of ennui every time I drive by the place. It was the sun of my social universe, and I miss it every day. On the good news tip, saw Robert Miller and his family at Garcia's for his 62nd birthday party. He looks great and is doing well. You can catch Sean the bartender at Garcia's and at the Cedar Room across the street on weekend nights.

I just deleted a comment on this post from someone who had nothing but bad things to say about the owner of Brother Olivers (who is now my brother-in-law). I don't mind negative comments, but it was done from "Anonymous" -- come on, if you have something to say, say it, but have the balls to at least say who you are.
