The Trysting Place Pub in Menomonee Falls is closing its doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, after 35 years of being open to the public.

The pub's owner, Sal Zizzo, announced the news on Facebook, stating that after decades of being open, "navigating a pandemic for the past 6 months has proven impossible."

The pub is permanently closing on Sept. 29 and plans to hold a rummage sale to sell all its furniture, fixtures, equipment and more.

"I would like to thank the millions of customers that we have served and the thousands of employees that have helped make us so successful over the past 35 years," wrote Zizzo.

Zizzo is also encouraging customers and supporters of the pub to vote on Nov. 3 and to support local businesses.

"On Tuesday, Nov. 3, vote out the politicians that so badly miss managed this pandemic and that left work to go on vacation rather than pass the second stimulus plan," wrote Zizzo. "Patronize and support locally owned and operated small businesses. They desperately need your help. I will miss seeing all of our loyal customers that have become close friends and I hope to see you around town helping support those that manage to stay afloat during this trying time."
