After we posted about Velvet Lounge and Dodge City closing yesterday, a reader wrote: “The new lease is set for a new gay bar.”
A tipster (with an over 95% accuracy rating. update now 93%) tells me that it is likely from the same ownership as Dirty Goose located next door.
Update: “A TDG (Dirty Goose) owner here. We do know the plans for the spaces, but it is not us. We deeply respect the new operator and will let them announce as they see fit”
Stay tuned for when the announcement is made.

I wanted to share this letter my friend in Shaw received via USPS…
I’m not sure if others in the neighborhood received the same letter. But the envelope was stamped and mailed.
My friend has BLM and Pride signage on their house.”
