The Week Ahead….Remington’s Last Stand

By Larry Janezich

Monday, April 14

Remington’s Last StandRemington’s closes today.  Expect a crowd this evening to celebrate the end of a 30/34 year run for the Capitol Hill institution.  The building (actually two adjacent buildings) was reportedly sold a year ago for $3 million to Mountain View Burleson, LLC.   Equus, the city’s original gay country-western bar which occupied half the building, took over the adjacent Gallagher’s and became Remington’s in the mid 1980’s.  Word on the street is that the building(s) will be gutted and divided.  Half will be occupied by a Sprint outlet; the new owners hope to open a food and beverage venue in the other half – the latter being uncertain.  Mountain View Burleson is a Texas LLC which lists its principle operation as Mountain View Development Company, Virginia Beach, VA.
