"Our hearts are very heavy to have to report such a sad outcome after all we have fought for but it looks like we may be losing our LEASE Wednesday March 25th which will mean the doors of ZOOGS will be closed for good.
We are working hard to save what has become a regular spot a CHEERS to so many people but loans take time and time is not on our side right now.
We were not going to post anything about losing our lease but want to give everyone the opportunity to get our SMOKED BBQ for the last time. If we are closing down, let's make this last week a week to remember and go out with a bang!! You never know, we've been saved before maybe we can pull something out of our hats?!
Everyones support over the years has been so overwhelming and we appreciate it so much!!
Till we meet again...CHEERS!
The restaurant also responded to comments of that message and it appears they are $16,000 behind, and they would like to reopen in a few months. They also said they plan to continue catering.
Assuming they do close on March 25th, their closing will be just a month and half after their episode of Restaurant Impossible aired of the Food Network. I will mark this restaurant as 'Closed' on the Restaurant Impossible Update page when it closes on the 25th.
UPDATE - Zoog's did close on the 25th as he couldn't come up with the money for the lease to continue. The property was listed for sale by the landlord for $495,000 (Link).
