That was quick.
We first reported that Paul Eighmey aka Casino Of Casino El Camino was preparing to take over the Scoot Inn back on August 23rd 2012.
That has now changed.
Gary Dinges over at the Statesman, penned an article in the daily paper this evening that Doug Guller of Bikini’s fame is now the new owner and is set to take control of the property this Friday.
Who knows what the inner machinations of that deal were as Eighmey was all systems go just a month ago. We covered the story here http://www.scrumptiouschef.com/food/2012/8/23/Paul-Eighmey-aka-Casino-Of-Casino-El-Camino-Set-To-Take-Over-The-Scoot-Inn?adminview=true as it broke across Austin.
We’ll update this article as more details emerge.
