So, so much has changed, I owe a much longer entry, but for now, have the quick-and-dirty.
The bar’s closed. Individuals we thought we could trust took advantage of that trust and ruined any chance we had of keeping the bar going. We’re dissolving the company and have moved back out of Crisfield (Jersey Island, more commonly known as Hammock Pointe, is still awesome. The house, the view, the people, all cool. Crisfield itself is a different story.), and are working to get the last of our possessions out of the bar.
We learned a lot, and will definitely be trying this again someday – it won’t be in Maryland, though.
