Dan Oskey OUT at Strip Club, IN at Hola Arepa

New, 1 comment

dan%20oskey%202.pngTwitter was abuzz over the weekend with the news that Dan Oskey will be leaving his longtime post as head bartender at St. Paul's The Strip Club Meat & Fish to join the team at Hola Arepa's upcoming brick n' mortar restaurant. Oskey has been at the Strip Club for 6 1/2 years, according to Niver's Twitter, and was one of the last of the restaurant's original employees. In addition to his much-lauded work at The Strip Club, Oskey is also a partner in Joia Soda and Easy & Oskey, which produces make-your-own bitters kits.

Strip Club co-owner Tim Niver and Hola Arepa announced the move pretty much simultaneously on Twitter early Saturday morning, and it looks like the shuffle is as amicable as it gets:

Hola Arepa—the Kingfield brick n' mortar from the popular food truck—is looking at a May opening date. Hola Arepa co-owner Birk Grudem and Oskey formerly worked together at Longfellow Grill. No word yet on what kind of cocktails Oskey has in store.
