Going out of business...

Unlike Ana's Tea House, the rumours are true: we've notified the landlady, and on December 1 - the Chateau closes its doors.

After ~3.5 years of togetherness - Friends-like longevity in flighty T.O. - we're winding it up on highly positive terms, as Voula plans for a move to the suburbs, Flavio mooches his family for more permanent digs, and Ming cruises into a bachelorette pad.

I for one have been insanely busy this year, and apologize to our blog readers (and indeed to my fellow Chateauvians) for lack of Bonhomme-initiated Chateau action of late. The non-Chateau universe has been calling, and I had to answer. Although this is a very sad announcement, the blog archives speaks for themselves: it's been a blast, and I when I think about what we've accomplished, I am EXTREMELY proud to be a Chateauvian in what was heretofore a Chateau-deprived city.

Stay tuned for housewrecking party announcements, including PunkinPalooza 2007 - Gourds of Fire (Sunday, October 21). The end is coming but there's two months to go out in Chateau style!

(also trying to break records for most usage of 'Chateau' in a Chateau Nice blog post)
