If you remember, I featured The Lunar Inn just a couple of months ago because I knew it was a restaurant in danger. Sure, I mainly publish news stories and publicity features because I have a day job, and I don’t get out as much as I would like. I’m not a full-time journalist or food writer. If I could, I would visit every restaurant, write about them, and continue to shout from the rooftops about them. Alas.
But when I heard (or saw) the pleas from The Lunar Inn on their social media, the least I could do was feature them and show them some blog love in hopes my audience would give them a chance. It wasn’t enough.
I know we all have time constraints and other reasons that restrict us from going out as much as we’d like (between my day job – which is NOT in food media, I’ll remind you – and freelance work, my sites, side hustles, and projects), it doesn’t leave much time for me to go out. I know, crazy! But I do the next best thing by writing about them or sharing them on my social media, hoping that lesser-known restaurants that fly under the radar of traditional media get some attention.
Even when you have the best intentions, sometimes we all fall short. We can’t do much more; try as hard as we do. These are heartbreaking times for everybody. Nobody is to blame, but it just sucks. And it brings me no joy to announce yet another closure. I’m sorry, guys. I wish the outcome were better.
You have until the end of December to try The Lunar Inn. Let’s go and send them off with a bang.
