Noooo!! Woke up this morning to Ruthie telling me some horrible news! God, I hope they can save that place...it doesn't sound good. My condolences to the owner, all the people that lost their jobs, all of the musicians and bands who depended on that place, and the whole Athens scene in general. What a huge loss, what an historical building...
