Common Table is closing Wednesday

Common TableThis is sad news to hear from Common Table in downtown Bend:

We are closing the restaurant associated with the nonprofit, Common Table as of the end of day Wednesday, August 8th. In addition to the day-to-day challenges of running a very unique restaurant, we’ve been informed that additional building renovations would completely shut us down for the next four months. This makes normal challenges grow to be untenable. We’ve met with our wonderful staff and will do what we can to help them find new positions (note to potential employers!).

Join us Wednesday for a celebration of the life of the restaurant. We will enjoy time together in “pay-as-you’re able” style, until the food and drink are all gone. We welcome diners during our regular hours between now and Wednesday as well.

I have to also wonder, what else in the building will be shut down for 4 months?
