Decision coming on the fate of Nitty Gritty Soul Cafe

Nitty Gritty Soul Cafe restaurant shooting

Winston-Salem Council Member James Taylor will announce the fate of Nitty Gritty Soul Cafe tomorrow, the site of a fatal shooting two weeks ago, according to the Winston-Salem Journal.

Brian Allison, co-founder of Coalition for a Health South Winston-Salem, said in an email message to the Journal that the city would place Nitty Gritty on probation for a year and that the restaurant would agree to not operate as a nightclub. The restaurant would also have to hire security.

Taylor declined to comment on tomorrow’s announcement, but said that Allison misconstrued a conversation the two had on Thursday.
