A new business is taking over the spot at 222 N. Washington where Joe’s Oldtown Bar & Grill closed last week.

But all we really know about it so far is it name and who owns it.

The Joe’s Facebook page now boasts several posts featuring a logo for The Bullpen by Club Rodeo. “Coming soon,” says the banner at the top of the page.

Joe’s owner Charlie Badeen said last week that he decided to close after he got an offer for the space from someone wanting to open a similar business. At the time, he said the new business should be open in two to three weeks.

Several messages and calls to Club Rodeo have gone unanswered.

Joe’s opened in 2012 and closed for good last week.

I’ll let you know when I learn more.
