Great news!

Despite being listed as permanently closed on Yelp and Google, and having the phone number disconnected, it looks like Tommy’s Joynt may not be shut down after all!

Chris Henry, owner of Tommy’s Joynt, just emailed me saying, “We’re not permanently closed! We’re temporarily shut down due to covid and mandatory closure from government.”

I reached out for more information and will update this when I hear more.


Sorry for jumping the gun about Tommy’s Joynt earlier.

I rectified it as soon as I learned it wasn’t permanently closed and have done what I can to get the word out.
I fuck up sometimes. I’m sorry.

On the flip side, a lot of people thought about Tommy’s for the first time in months and are newly inspired to give them some money when they reopen.

So at least something good came out of it.

Sorry again if I broke your heart earlier today.
