Well that was quick. 

Writing was on the wall when, after they re-opened, management made no effort to reach out to the community. Would have required one heck of an apology and a crap-ton of coupons.

I remember eating at one in the twin cities a couple years ago. The best I remember was food decent, kinda more upscale then Green Mill, and seemed like a good bar scene. 

I say bring 'em on...Green Mill was getting stale.

It was a smart decision to sell, as that was bad publicity to overcome, even if it improved and exceeded standards.

Edit:  Crooked Pint is a sister restaurant chain, as it it listed on the Green Mill gift cards as such. Those cards will still be good at Crooked Pint.

Good news for the lunch crowd in GF.

I've been to the downtown Fargo location a couple of times...never been disappointed.

Very good. The owners were pretty hands on when they opened in Fargo I believe to make sure everything was done right.

The rumor is Whiteys is closing and Sickies will go in there.

Sad, but the writing has been on the wall for a while re: Whiteys.  I think Sickies would do well in that location.

ya i never understood that place, must be a Grand Forks native thing. 

Only have been in there a couple of times during the wine walks and never once thought about it any other time. 

I am glad to see Sickies doing so well.

When I came to college in the early 90's it was a pretty popular place to go.  East side in general was popular.  They still had The Antique then as well.  Post flood it has struggled. 

Here's the GF Herald article confirming the sale: http://www.grandforksherald.com/news/business/4315500-sickies-garage-take-over-whiteys

Both will stay open to begin with, but I'd be shocked if the Columbia Road location remained open for long. 

Hey I had an opportunity to leave that location, I would in a heartbeat.  It rivals the corner of Washington and Demers as the worst location to have a business in the Grand Forks Area.

safe to say that "whitey's" brand is 100% dead...and greg stennes will be heartbroken.

Really though, Whitey's has been lacking an identity for 20 years.

Slightly off topic, but has anyone been to the Sickies in Sioux Falls?  It's huge!  And doing well, by all appearances.  Happy to support an ND-based business.

I really do hope the GF location sticks around.  Parking at EGF can be just as challenging.

And when I came to college 20 years before that, it was a pretty popular place to go. Especially with ND closed on Sundays. Both states had a drinking age of 21 years old.

Not on that end.  Park to south of Demers in either the riverfront lot (always open) or cabela's lot.
