A popular Uptown bar has surprisingly closed its doors for good, according to messages left on its social media accounts. Overnight, the people who run Bar Abilene’s Twitter and Facebook sent this message: “Thank you Uptown! We love you and will miss you.”
As the dad of 2 and 5-year-old boys, I take home more leftover chicken nuggets than I care to think about. And I’ve looked at my bill in shock at kids meals that cost $6, don’t include a drink, and are nothing more than a tiny cup of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese.
During the summer, one of the things I most enjoy in Uptown is hitting up a nice happy hour on Sunday and just letting the day go by. I find it quite relaxing!
