RUMORS GET STARTED and then spiral out of control in the Q-Town all the time. I attribute them to Trump, the Zika virus, Cori Lyssy's dogs and Greg Ellery running for mayor.
There is one rumor we need to quash right now. One Restaurant at Sixth and Hampshire is NOT closing. I repeat, NOT, closing.
Yes, the restaurant is for sale. Yes, the owners, Noi and Tenille Sonethongkham, are shopping the building in the hopes in could be taken to the next level, but "it's business as usual until we find a buyer," Tenille says.
"We just want to find someone with more time to devote to the restaurant," she says.
Noi and Tenille have mortgage and insurance businesses, not to mention their kids. So it's time for somebody else to run the show. One Restaurant has been very good to the local music scene - bands every weekend, open mic night on Thursdays. We are hopeful somebody sees the potential and keeps it musician-friendly.
One is still open, and will stay open. Thank you. I'm voting for Greg Ellery, too.
