This is not the potato pub, it's the spud pub. It exists as a black hole of good interesting conversation. None will be found here. So everyone who has anything completely uninteresting to say can post it right here and it will be read by no one. ( most likely.)

Long-live the Spud. Way better than the anti-pub or anything that Sparky creates.

Fittingly, just this past weekend a local restaurant named Spud Budley's went out of business. Sad day. The place was delicious, good concept (giant baked potatoes with all kinds of different toppings) and super nice owners. Not to mention their killer slogan "Real Spuds for Real Buds".

Still not sure what happened, as it is was real sudden and their website and facebook pages were taken down overnight.

Probably moved to Colorado and opened another restaurant where their new slogan is "Real Buds for Real Spuds".
