Newby's Restaurant, the popular Highland Strip watering hole and live music venue has been seized by the state of Tennessee for non-payment of taxes. The bar was shut down on Wednesday, November 2. No further information is currently available.
UPDATE: Newby's has reopened according to owner Todd Adams who described the brief closing as a "tic" of the clock. "I was supposed to turn in some [tax related] paper work on Friday and totally let it slip," he explained.
