Fans of The Village Cork on South Pearl Street have just under two months to drink and dine there before the wine bistro closes its doors on June 30. Owner Lisa Lapp announced this week on Facebook that she’s closing the neighborhood restaurant. But she’s also giving her staff and customers time “to celebrate these last two months with continued laughter and shared memories, and there have been many!!” she writes. “From baby showers, proposals, a wedding, break ups, and everything in between.”

The Village Cork’s followers responded in kind:

“This leaves me with a heavy heart. In our 3 years in the neighborhood we have celebrated some wonderful times here: Christmas Eve, a friend getting into law school, a friend moving to Michigan, family coming to Colorado. Much love for your staff, food and wine selections :)” —Alicia Ann

“My husband and I went on our first official date at The Village Cork! Sad to see it go!” —Natalie Hansell

“You will be missed. This was one of the first places I took my wife on a date.” —Tony Fagler

“One of our favorite places of all time. We had a Valentine’s Day dinner there that was unforgettable. Thank you so much [sic] for the memories, Lisa.” —Angelo Papi

Eater reached out to Lapp about the closing but did not initially hear back. See the restaurant’s announcement posts below.
