Armington, IL. — The Outpost is closed. We succumbed to the whims of the local government. We don't really know why. We know who drove the effort to close us, and we know who voted to close us. We don't really know why there was so much animosity toward us from the town board. We searched for a new location, but the more we searched, the more we understood that we could never replace the spirit of The Outpost. It was perfect. You can't duplicate that. We will take this time and reflect on what worked and what didn't. Maybe the winds of government will shift down the road and we can revisit and reboot. Until then, thank you for your precious support. We had a blast.
