On Saturday, March 12, Lower Greenville dive The Winedale Tavern would have turned 26-years-old.
But, just days before its birthday, the bar's owners shuttered the doors and closed for business. In three weeks' time, though, the doors will be open again -- and this time it will be called The Single Wide.
"It will be along the same lines as Double Wide -- a comfortable, laid-back neighborhood bar," Finch says. "You'll definitely see a lot of similarities."
The Single Wide will have the same relaxed feel that the Winedale had, and in about three weeks, after minor repairs and updates are made, the public will get to see for themselves. Finch is hoping to tap into the success that the Winedale had at one point.
