The Open Mic Jam
We have some very unfortunate news to share. As some of you know, Terry O’Reilly’s Irish Pub, was purchased by a new owner in December. Yesterday, a few moments before the open mic started, we were informed that we did not fit within the direction and vision that the new owner wanted to take the bar.
As such, THIS UPCOMING WEDNESDAY (1/30) will be the last open mic that will be held at Terry O’Reilly’s. This is very hard for us and we understand if this raises a lot of questions, and unfortunately we don’t have the answers. Five years ago, we had a vision (with the O'Reilly family) of building the community that you helped us build. And, goddammit did we do a great job building it. We’ve been hosting 20+ musicians, comics, poets, magicians, performers, etc., per week but the bar is no longer the Terry's we worked to create. It is well within the new owner's right to take it in any direction, and we wish them the best in that endeavor. We couldn't be more thankful for the love and dedication each of you have brought to our little Wednesday night. It genuinely breaks our heart that it is coming to end.
However, let it be rest assured, this is not the end. What all of us do is much more than a location and we will rise again. For now, let us celebrate one last time this Wednesday. We have expanded our advance sign up list to 25 slots, and we will have a few walk in slots as well. Here’s to one more amazing night at our Terry’s and many more to come after.
Peace and Love,
Andrew and Terrance
