The rumor is that the owners didn't have any insurance on the place. Again, that's the "rumor".

They did not have insurance on the building so it is a loss for them and will have to pay out of pocket for the rebuild.

I bet it would be pretty hard to get insurance on that building here in the land of last resort insurance.

Been there many times. I doubt they will rebuild. I've always heard that place has been a bone of contention for the local residents and further the County officials. I am sure they will make it very difficult/costly for it to return. It was in the rotation of places to visit on Sunday afternoon and a good ride destination but I could take or leave the place itself. The food was "meh". I once ordered chicken wings and got a basket of 10 Buffalo chicken legs.

The most recent owner did tell me when it was revamped that he had spent quite the wad on renovations. He quoted a number that was not apparent to the naked eye but maybe a lot of it was kitchen gear. The stage did a 180 turn and saw improvements which was the most apparent change. It's a shame to see any biker friendly facility go away.
