UNION GROVE, Wis. (AP) â Mike Knutson taught himself to play the harmonica as a child, and the 96-year-old sang with his family for most of his life. Even now, as he suffers from dementia, music is an important part of his life thanks to a study looking at the impact of a nationwide music program aimed at helping dementia patients.
After a little over a year in business, it looks likeÂ Music City Tippler, the Midtown restaurant and bar that has struggled for a large part of its short life, will shutter permanently this weekend. Back in August,Â local restaurant group Strategic Hospitality was hired on in what appeared to be a last ditch effort by the Tippler owners to save the project, but Eater has now received a tip from a trusted source saying that an 'empty the bar' party will be taking place this weekend, something typically done as a last hurrah. Additionally, a social media post from former Tippler general manager Daniel Cheney confirms this, stating that his sources tell him this Friday night will be the restaurant's last.
