Back in March, the Pig ‘N Whistle closed its doors, much to the chagrin of many in the neighborhood who enjoyed the neighborhood bar.
But now it’s scheduled to reopen sometime this month under new ownership, featuring a new menu and an expanded beer list. “We missed you guys!!!” reads a message on the sign on the front door.
With the Pig coming back, there’s a campaign underway to convince the new ownership to bring back Rene, “the greatest bartender, EVER,” according to this MySpace page that urges fans to email the new owners. There are also signs in the neighborhood campaigning for Rene.
We’ll update as soon as we learn more about the Pig’s official reopening.
Update: The owners tell us they’re aiming for the first week of August.
