There was fire at Stubborn Goat and they are closed indefinitely. However this is what they said in a social media post
We are currently still assessing the damages and ongoing situation and deciding how to best move forward as a business. Stubborn Goat has been open for ten years, and so many memories have been made inside these walls by both guests and our team over the last decade. There is no doubt we will rebuild and reopen, however, at this time we don’t have many details to share on what that looks like. We promise to keep in touch as the situation evolves and update everyone via our social media channels, so stay tuned, and we appreciate your patience while we navigate this.”
