It's lights out at The Pub today


Niagara Gazette — The real reason for exiting Lewiston on top of their game is still a mystery. Neither Webster nor Scibetta was interested in divulging the details. But they both said going out on their own terms at this point is the best they could hope for. They said five potential buyers are in line and any sale will include the building’s name. The only thing they won’t be able to guarantee is the community feel they’ve established.

They’re definitely hopeful, though.

“It’s been the greatest six years of my life,” Webster said. “And this is the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make. It’s crazy something so little can have such a lasting impact on people. I just hope whoever we sell this place to has the same commitment to the community as we’ve had.”

“It’s been an honor to be part of this community,” Scibetta added. “I hope the community stays true to its roots. I’ve always felt this village is a a special, special place.”
