Boy, 2012 has been a rough year for north county dive bars. Just this spring we’ve seen Mccaffrey’s Pub in Solana Beach and Yogi’s in Cardiff shut down with plans to open under new ownership. Bar Leucadian, once a hub for live music, has mysteriously stopped all entertainment and begun shutting down early.
And now, according to a Diana Street resident, this change of ownership sign was posted yesterday at Uncle Duke’s:
According to Carl, the bar’s current owner and manager, the whole escrow process with the ABC involved is ‘back-assward’. The new owners (Luckies LLC) have to go through a 90 day period of background checks, paperwork, signing away their first borns and things like that before they actually take the reins. So the derelicts of Diana Street can look forward to at least 89 more days of North County’s most crap-tastic dive bar, Uncle Duke’s.
And as for Carl, he’s getting the hell out of dodge, with plans to start a new business in a tropical locale.
