UPDATE: Bardog (Once Again) Reopens


  • Bardog Tavern/Facebook
Well, that sump pump officials with Bardog Tavern bought yesterday must have worked. The bar is open, once again, after a flood in the basement closed the popular Downtown spot yesterday. (See original post below.)

(PREVIOUS POST) Bardog Tavern is, once again, temporarily closed as bar owners and city officials deal with issues related to a collapsed sewer line, according to bar owner Aldo Dean.

The closure is the this bar's fifth since September 21st. Dean said in a Facebook post Thursday the restaurant's basement flooded after a city contractor damaged a water main.

Dean said the whole situation "has been disheartening to say the least." It was unclear on Thursday afternoon when the bar would re-open.

See Dean's full statement in this Facebook post:
