On Friday night, Gretchen and I joined a goodly crowd of regular patrons at Tom Ryan’s Over the Moon Cafe for a last celebration of our favorite end-of-the-week entertainment and foodfest.
Michael and Kari Kovick and Phil Woddaill kept the music coming while patrons swapped stories and had the usual good time. Tom’s food and hospitality have kept us coming back week after week and it was a shame that it was all coming to an end.
According to what Tom had told me earlier, the new owners were going to reopen the Over the Moon after a short closing for redecoration.
While I was writing this article, I was told by a reliable source that the deal has not gone through and we may have a few more hurrahs left to celebrate. According to the latest news, Tom will reopen after a short vacation and we can expect more Friday night parties and weekday service from the deli.
I hope this works out well for all concerned. The Over the Moon Deli and Gallery are favorite destinations for visitors and local citizens alike.
