A large group of supporters is expected to turn out at the Mid City West Community Council meeting tonight as the first stop in an effort to save Tom Bergin’s Tavern and have it designated as a historic site.
The 77-year old Irish restaurant/bar closed at the end of their Sunday shift, July 7th. Staff announced the sudden closing on Facebook late Wednesday, July 3rd. According to various sources, the closing is due to poor sales.
A group organized on a Facebook page called ‘Keep Tom Bergin’s Open’ and will seek historic designation. The Mid City West Community Council meeting presents a forum to get the backing of the community as the group moves forward. Supporters are encouraged to attend this meeting. Comments will start at 6:30pm sharp!
