Landmark Whitey's closes; reverts back to Stennes family owners with Park Rapids ties
Whitey's, the East Grand Forks landmark bar and restaurant that dates its origins to the Prohibition era in the 1920s, closed Tuesday only a few months after a new ownership group took over.
A hand-written sign in the door Tuesday said "Whitey's Steak and Seafood is closed."
Dave Norman, one of the owners, said he closed the place Tuesday and blamed a competitive marketplace for making it too tough to make a go.
