Turf Club to get new owner

Local scenesters have been grinding this story in the rumor mill for long enough that many people had already heard it, including me.

Details on what is to come are clearly still scarce. But isn't that to be expected with something that hasn't happened yet? According to an article in today's Star Tribune, The Turf Club's current owner Mark Johnson is in talks to sell the club to Tom Scanlon, owner the Dubliner Pub. (For those of you who don't get out much, you may remember the Dubliner as the old Ace Box Bar at 2162 University Ave.)
