Maxine’s Tap Room Gutted By Fire!

Early Tuesday Maxine’s Tap Room–my favorite Fayetteville dive which I have written about on this blog before–was gutted by a fire.

The good news is that its structurally fine….the bad news is that its interior is what made Maxinie’s Maxines’…see my Flikr posts to see what I mean.

The fire apparently started in a trash can beneath the bar & firefighters had to cut into the roof as Maxine had fitted the front and back doors of her establishment with formidable iron gates….

Alas…Maxine dies, then the beloved Tap Room itself is torched….

This MUST be my queue to leave Fayetteville…I move to Magnolia, Arkansas this Sunday.
