Closing a true Boro icon
Snooky's to shut Feb. 18, 41 years after first opening
After having coffee Monday, Snooky's restaurant regular Earl Lavender reads the notice at the cash register announcing the closing of the Statesboro institution. Lavender, a customer since the restaurant first opened, says February 18 will be "a sad day -- won't be another one."
The date has officially been set for the closing of a true icon in Statesboro's business community. Snooky's Restaurant is slated to serve its last meal on Feb. 18, just one day after the property on which it sits is scheduled to be sold. Snooky's owner Bruce Yawn has mixed emotions about the anticipated closing of the restaurant that he and his father founded 41 years ago.
