Dear Friends,
We are extremely sad to tell you that on December 22, 2016, Spoke will close its doors. As all of you know I have been dealing with very serious health issues. For many months I have tried to remain at the helm from afar. However, as any of you in this industry know, this is not an ideal way to run a business. This is especially true for someone like me whose goal was to not only discover amazing wine, but to be in the trenches every night sharing this experience with each and every one of my guests and staff. It is a testament to my incredible staff that they have managed to soldier on without me for so long. Every single one of them are friends and heroes for their professionalism and tremendous hard work. When all is finished and the doors close, each one of them will move on to incredible new pursuits (and perhaps a few well-deserved vacations) and they have earned my eternal love and gratitude. And thanks to all of you, our guests and neighbors, for making Spoke such a wonderful place. We could not have done this without you. It is my hope that all of you will continue to support us with your patronage and your good will until the end. I maintain faith that someone in the industry will buy the restaurant and continue what we started. In the meantime, it will be business as usual. You can expect the same great food, wine, and service.  Peace and Love, Flea. #smallbutmightyspoke #wine #thefleaandsherishow @chefjohndasilva @lovedayink @lizmann126 @hannibalrae @thesonofpar @grshalan @creamofsoup @self_khanhstruction @gravitok
