Not true, said owner Linda Rauen when reached by City Pages early this afternoon.
First, here's how the rumor spread on Twitter:
Huh. Anybody else heard this? MT @drew_christ whoa French Meadow bought the CC Club and is closing it. ...-- Heavy Table (@heavytable) November 28, 2012
Someone fix the world and tell me the CC Club is not closing.-- steveferris (@steveferris) November 28, 2012
So, is this CC club closing stuff a rumor or does someone have proof?-- cristabellllll (@cristabell) November 28, 2012
I want a definitive link re CC Club closing and I want it now.-- Andy Gifford (@andygifford) November 28, 2012
It's all a bunch of baloney, according to Rauen.
whoa French Meadow bought the CC Club and is closing it. havent been there in a long time but daaaamn, that place shouldnt close.-- Drew Christopherson (@drew_christ) November 28, 2012
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.
