Gordon’s, a popular Delaware Avenue bar that has become a North Buffalo neighborhood fixture, has been sold, a few days short of its 11th anniversary party.
The handover won’t take place until June or July, so the party – set for April 8 – will go on as planned, said owner Corey Gordon. Fans of the place, and fans of burgers and beer in general, will have plenty of chances to say goodbye.
“It’s definitely nice that it’s going down this way, that they came to me and I could make a decision out of what’s best, instead of out of necessity,” Gordon said. “A lot of bar owners don’t get to make that choice.”
Gordon declined to identify the buyer, at their request, he said.
In a farewell posted to the bar’s website and Facebook page, Gordon thanked his wife Carrie, his son Greyson, and other family members. Then he thanked his staff: “All of the lists and any recognition we have gotten over the years was because of you.”
Last, he thanked his loyal customers for their patronage. “Over the next few months it's business as usual at Gordon's,” he wrote, “where ‘Nobody leaves a stranger.’”
