...and that's a wrap on Theory Wine Bar + Listening Room
We wanted to let all of you know that, in spite of our best efforts, Theory is officially permanently closed - we will not be reopening. The fact that this came about so quickly has been a painful shock to us. The decision to close our doors was difficult, as we put everything that we had and are into bringing our dream of Theory to life.
A number of factors played into the overall situation - some under our control; others not. We apologize for our part in this - we were new to the industry and certainly made mistakes. As to the other issues, we have to cut our losses and accept what is. Lessons learned; no regrets. (Well, maybe a couple...)
- To the incredibly talented musicians who performed on our stage: we were humbled and honored to have you in our house, and hope that the Greater Boston and North Shore live music scenes continue to thrive.
- To our 'Townies': we appreciate your enthusiasm for what we tried to create on Main Street with Theory. We encourage you to support other small, locally owned Andover, Lawrence and North Andover businesses -- local businesses are owned and operated by your neighbors! They care about and are invested in the welfare of our community and its future.
- To the best little family of employees that we ever could have asked for (Beth, Brian, Colin, Brendan, Kristen, Ethan & Ivan): we appreciate you, your hard work and dedication, and wish you all deepest well-being and happiness.
- To our family and friends: we love you and thank you for everything.
We'll sign off now -- time to tidy things up and figure out where the winds will take us next. You can still explore with us though — go out and experience some live music — and dare yourself to try wine varietals & wine-making regions that are new to you!
Cheers & Big Love,
Jenny Schneidewent & Chris Bachmann
