RE: Burt's Place Temporarily Closing
I spoke to Burt this afternoon after the news broke. All I can do is confirm the original report that the store will be closing after this Sunday night, February 3rd, 2008. I also need to stress that this is happening due to the medical procedure mentioned in the original post on LTHforum. Burt is not selling the store and does plan to reopen after a recuperation period of at least four weeks and more likely 6 to 8 weeks.
Burt and his wife Sharon appreciate all the well-wishers and look forward to seeing everyone once Burt is 100% up to speed. If you know Burt, you know he is not a "computer guy" by any stretch of the imagination. So I will print out all posts with good thoughts and present them to him this Saturday night when I see him.
With this news coming out today, business is likely to be extremely brisk for the rest of the week, so it is recommended that you call ahead with your order, either for pick up or "eating in" well in advance.
Looking forward to seeing as many of you as posssible on Saturday night.
