Buzz Mill team to take over Midway Field House (former Antone’s) space on East Riverside

Midway Field, the short-lived sports bar that set up shop in the space next door to Emo’s on East Riverside, has closed.  The following note, signed “Coach” was posted on the club’s Facebook page this morning.

No word yet on whether the club, which was also briefly the least successful iteration of Antone’s, will re-emerge as a music venue.

The team behind the lumberjack-themed coffee shop Buzz Mill (who trace their roots back to the old Emo’s downtown location) is taking over. Buzz Mill is also located on East Riverside.
