The Harvester is once again The Harvester
Ken Merrick has restored a classic name to his business -- Uncle Tony's is now The Harvester, a variation of a name on the bar for 17 years before it became Uncle Tony's.
Merrick said since he was switching from a sole proprietorship to an LLC, and would have to re-apply for his liquor license, and since Uncle Tony's no longer served food, it seemed like the right time to make the switch.
Merrick has owned the business for 36 years on Harvester Avenue, operating it originally as the Harvester Hotel.
"My customers that go way back said, 'We still all call it the Harvester,'" Merrick said. "They told me, 'Why don't you call it the Harvester?'" I said, "OK, but I'm not calling it the Harvester Hotel."
