FKA Damons, Babes East, Tilted Kilt

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

Went past it and it's reopened. No signage yet but the parking lot was full. Soft opening?
Know that Buddy's was denied a liquor license in the first go-round, was it later granted?

Saw the fabric banner, it will be Buddie's. Wonder how long they'll last.

Probably not long, buddies never pay for drinks.

But seriously, I wish them luck in turning around a seemingly cursed location. The Lazy Oaf Lounge did it, hopefully so can they.

Usually a place just needs the right people running it. Good luck My Buddies!

We decided to give this place a try today. Figured it had been open long enough to work out any bugs and have seen more than two cars there regularly. I have an aversion to eating anywhere with a name like "My Buddies". Well, I ended up not having to eat there because apparently they were not interested in dining customers. We walked in and stood for about 5 minutes without being recognized. I know the bartenders saw us. There was only one family in the dining area and it looked as though they too were looking for someone to recognized them. Not a waitress or hostess to be found. We walked out. I can only assume that management has the employees park in the front row to have it appear as though people go here.

My question when it opened was why would you name your establishment "My Buddies". Really? Do you want customers? I think the guy from "Bar Rescue" on Spike TV should pay a visit.

Well the first picture is appropriate, as their logo looks like it features a few children drinking beer.

My Buddies closed as of today. No reason was given, put police tape is around the building and parking lot.

Police tape? Crime scene? I don't think the police use that for all closed restaurants.

My Buddies closing was just a matter of time. It's a bad location with very high rent from what I hear. Top that off with a terrible name and no clear concept and that place was destined to fail. I gotta wonder what could be successful there.

And...drove by today and it's opening again, this time as (IIRC), "The Journey". Sushi buffet.

How many months do we give it?

Didn't a sushi buffet fail after a few months on East Wash, not too far away from this new place?

Oysy, a weird mashup of Asian bits and pieces and the Western ghosts of Tumbleweed, the space's previous resident.
