AUSTINTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Austintown pub Barry Dyngles will be delaying its “Queen of Hearts” drawing for Wednesday, Sept. 23, until a later date, according to a statement from the restaurant’s owners sent Monday.
The statement reads:
“With all of the enthusiasm surrounding Queen of Hearts, our staff will be utilizing the next several days to meet with consultants in an effort to develop the best possible experience for our loyal customers for the coming weeks. With that said, the Wednesday, September 23rd drawing will be rescheduled to a future date with an exciting announcement to follow at week’s end!
Restaurant officials also noted that they ran out of food Monday, according to owners, and will not be serving anything until 4 p.m.
According to Austintown Trustee Jim Davis, there is no governing body telling Barry Dyngles when it has to hold the drawing. The delay is in the interest of public safety, according to Davis, and tickets can be sold up to the point of the drawing.
The drawing may be held the following Wednesday, Sept. 30, but Barry Dyngles managers are looking to find a safer location, or may split the drawing up among several locations, Davis said.
Tickets for the drawing can only be bought at Barry Dyngles in Austintown.
