A Fond Farewell: Wine C.A.R.T., Kona, and more

I never made it out to the Wine C.A.R.T. in West Chester – mainly because I rarely make it out to West Chester. But with all the folks who do live on that end of town – why didn't you go to the Wine C.A.R.T?

Sadly, the economy has taken it's toll and the Wine C.A.R.T. is officially closed. I received their last e-newsletter today.

To all,
The economy
has become an 800 pound gorilla that wasn’t there, nor foreseen, when
we opened our doors in early 2007.  Today it is – – it has strangled our
opportunity to get further funding and enough relief to keep our doors open.

It is with
great sadness that I must say goodbye to all of you.  With no end in
sight to the current financial crisis, I have had to make the tough decision
to close our fabulous wine bar. 

I won’t
close our doors without remembering the great camaraderie and personal
friendships that we have built in our short time in business.  Wow, it
was awesome for me and I hope for you too!  I hope you enjoy some of the
wonderful pictures (too many to post) from 2008.

I wish you
the best in your future wine purchasing and hope to see you all at Jungle
special wine tastings in the future – – tell Dave and
Todd I sent you!

Happy New
Year . . . Mike, Jane and I will miss you,


Of course, the Wine C.A.R.T. isn't the only place we've lost this year. The following restaurants come to mind: we lost the following restaurants:

  • Kona Bistro, Oakley
  • Wah Mee
  • Seny
  • Pacific Moon
  • Tropicana

I'm sure I missed many. Let me know in the comments the other . In the meantime, our fondest farewell to the Wine C.A.R.T.
