Perkins Has Closed

In case you haven't heard the news, Perkins suddenly shut down yesterday, for good.  As with most folks (including, apparently, their general manager), this came as a complete surprise to me.  I feel especially bad for Chris and others we got to know there, who always made us feel welcome and did a great job waiting on us and such, who are suddenly out of a job, after years of faithful service.  I don't know any particulars of the lawsuit settlement, but with a major community church as the property owner, I just can't help thinking a better outcome than this should have been possible.

As for our group, however, I'm hoping we can move on from this as quickly as we can and find a new location that suits our needs.  If anyone has suggestions for a new place to meet, please email or call ASAP if you'd like me to contact them.

I certainly agree that it's a shame about the closing and all the loyal Perkin's employees. Hope they got a good severance package!
