According to a representative of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 4822, the VFW Bar in Edina will close its doors for good for financial reasons.
The business opened at 2:00 p.m. on New Year's Eve for one last hurrah. The bar will close for the last time at 2:00 a.m. early New Year's Day morning.
There are three people employed at the business. Not all of them have found jobs to go to. According to one of the bartenders, they were notified at the beginning of December the bar would be closing.
It is unknown what will become of the building that houses the bar and the VFW Post 4822.
Nothing has been planned to mark the closing of the business, though, a New Year's Eve crowd is expected.
