The front doors to the Dog & Bee Pub have signs stating that the business is closed for now but should be opened again, with new management, in about a month. The pub closed Wednesday night without warning and all the staff was let go.

BEEVILLE – Three gentlemen in business suits stood across the street waiting for the walk signal to give them permission to cross the street and have some lunch at the Dog & Bee Pub when they noticed two paper signs taped to the front doors.

The signs read “Closed for Reorganization.”

The men shrugged and off they went down the road. But that’s how fast it happened.

Overnight, the Dog & Bee went from bustling business to a barren building.

The employees were all called to a mandatory meeting Wednesday night and left without jobs.

Even the Dog & Bee’s Facebook status was promoting its karaoke competition that was supposed to take place that night but was then updated at the time of the competition start with the closing notice.

Apparently, all is still relatively well as far as the business goes.

Dog & Bee owner Brenda Hughes said of the closing, “We’re reorganizing. We’re bringing in another management group.

“It’s going to take about three weeks, and we’re changing the entire kitchen to make it a little more efficient.

“We just couldn’t seem to get on top of it, so we figured the best thing to do was close it.”

The Dog & Bee has been open for nearly two years.

And though the staff was unexpectedly left without work, they were welcome to reapply.

The pub is expected to reopen in about a month.

Three months have passed and it is still closed. In the meantime I have discovered Stone Creek Grill (excellent) and the Beeville Diner. Chili's is always packed. With all the oil activity in the area, one would think a quality restaurant (whose menu contains green vegetables, not just fried food and starches) would be able to make a go of it.

Or Maybe not.
