GM got in touch with Jonathan Umbel, owner of Hook and Tacklebox, this weekend to check in on the status of his proposed butcher shop/restaurant to go in next to Tacklebox. The plan was first announced last Fall, but GM was starting to get nervous that the plans fell through. Turns out his fears were justified. Umbel confirmed that the plans to open up next to Tacklebox have been scotched because the owner of the property decided not to sell. Umbel said he’s still considering other locations in Georgetown as potential locations, but will not likely make any move until the economy improves.
