Bar 82 closing

Posted in News with tags on March 21, 2013 by coffeeblackproductions

Sad news today. After almost 3 years as our artistic home, Bar 82 is closing as of March 31st. We would like to thank Bar 82, Chloe, and Dan for giving us a home for our company and encourage everyone to run on over and drink until the end of the month.

For the immediate future, the remainder of our 4th season is postponed. Maybe we’ll find a new venue. Maybe we’ll revamp what we do. Maybe we’ll just decide to save money.

In any case, thanks to everyone who came out to one of our shows. Thanks to everyone who has worked with us so far and hopefully we will work with you again soon.
