Okay Okay - news flash

This just in.....Okay Okay has been sold over the holidays. Went there today and the husband and wife are gone. Menu is exact same as before. I think it will be very interesting to see what if anything transpires over the next couple of months. Although I did not get to know the husband and wife team, the place seemed to have a certain hip vibe to it. I'm not sure that will remain. It's my understanding the couple went on to pursue other interests but they would not say what. Anybody know? Also, I could be wrong, but I think the new owner also has a stake in Mars Diner.

  1. Ahhhh, that's why it was closed yesterday without any notice. I walked down there for lunch and had to wait outside for my friend. I'll try again.
    You said "husband and wife team" who used to own it, but I thought the owner was a fellow who used to own Mockingbird Jazz bar years ago? Get me up to speed please! ;-) So do you know the names of the new owners?

    1. I wonder what's been going on behind the scenes? First Trevor leaves, then the new young servers start telling pairs that they can't sit at booths when it's busy... Something like this was bound to happen, I guess.

      I love Ok Ok and don't even care about some of the standard issues that we all have (like the frozen hash brown patties); I really enjoyed the quality of service and that's what kept me returning.

      Mars Diner... Well, the location on College is filthy. I hope that doesn't happen at Ok Ok.
