Lucky for all of us in the east, the current owners of the Linsmore have been working hard to bring it back as a live music venue and have been mildly successful, investing the revenue back into the building. A new facade and a new bar have been installed among other upgrades. Pioneer had to ask: what's a guy to do with a corner lot with prime real-estate? To our delight, there's a long term plan to install a patio perfect for people watching.
Will they have craft beer? Nope - says Ryan. A man's gotta be able to get a Labbat50 somewhere, after all.
And about the $1.50 draught? It's true, you can still get a $1.50 6 oz. draught on any given afternoon, but only by special request.
This weekend is the last weekend of 70's month, with a Pink Floyd and a Zeppelin tribute band playing Friday & Saturday night. Last weekend was sold out so check out their website for more info & get tickets here: www.linsmoretavern.com.
