CC Club owner dispels rumors, says bar is not being sold or closing

It's business as usual at the CC, a co-owner says.
Earlier today, a rumor erupted on social media that the legendary CC Club -- arguably the diviest dive bar in the Uptown vicinity and the inspiration for The Replacements' classic "Here Comes A Regular" -- was being sold and would soon be shutting its doors.

Not true, said owner Linda Rauen when reached by City Pages early this afternoon.

First, here's how the rumor spread on Twitter: It's all a bunch of baloney, according to Rauen.

Told about the rumor spreading on Twitter, Rauen asked us to "Twitter 'em back and tell them you talked to one of the owners, and she'd know."

Over at the French Meadow, co-owner Steve Shapiro confirmed that the rumor is "definitely not true," according to the Meadow's catering manager.

So it looks like dirty hipsters will still have a place to call home in Uptown for the foreseeable future.

@gruidl Second person to send me that. Great to see. I don't go there much, but I'd hate to see it go.

@solace I heard from someone else, but hopefully that article is right. Also, is Art Materials really turning into a Trader Joes?

Everything is for sale for the right price.

That's funny. Last weekend I was at the Bulldog across the street and talked up one of the CC employees that was hanging out at the bar, and they (pronoun is intentional) said that the bar was definitely for sale. 

The CC is a god damn gold mine so I don't know why the owners would want to sell it in the first place. It's not like they invest any money into the joint the way it is.

@coal_bee same here. Spent most nights there in the early 00's. Was just the place we went after band practice, or before...or both.
