Mys­tery of Black Som­brero

The Northern Star - - NEWS -

POP­U­LAR Lis­more eatery Black Som­brero re­mains a dark and empty pres­ence on Keen Street.

In vain, peo­ple who pre­vi­ously flocked there to en­joy de­li­cious Mex­i­can food, now walk past the va­cant build­ing to other restau­rants.

Af­ter the dev­as­tat­ing March floods, Black Som­brero’s owner Julie Dick­en­son was ac­tive in the the cam­paign to rein­vig­o­rate Lis­more’s CBD.

But 10 weeks ago on Au­gust 7, she an­nounced through so­cial so­cial me­dia the busi­ness would only be closed for a short while.

She tweeted via black­som­breromex: “Hi folks, some tem­po­rar­ily sad news I’m afraid, but don’t fret, it’s not game over, just a re­treat and re­group! Bred tough in Lis­more ... watch this space for up­dates. XOX Julie.”

Renowned for ta­pas and tequila, cus­tomers were look­ing for­ward to Black Som­brero’s re­open­ing. How­ever, the cheery mes­sage which greeted callers now rings out. And with Keen St now jump­ing with ac­tion, it’s a sad re­minder of for­mer times.

All ef­forts by The North­ern Star to con­tact Ms Dick­en­son have been un­suc­cess­ful.
