Business About That Rumor About Those People Considering Buying the Crocodile
posted by December 17 at 17:23 PMon
So the Crocodile is closed, that much has been confirmed by a number of (former) employees—booker Eli Anderson cleaned out his office today. But what isn’t clear is what’s going to happen to the club now.
According to the King County Assessment office, there’s no record of sale for the building, and as far as we know Stephanie Dorgan still owns the club, but she hasn’t returned phone calls and isn’t saying if she plans to sell and if so, to whom. There are currently rumors of a group of local club owners who are considering buying the business. On the top of that list of possibilities are the owners of Nuemo’s, Jason Lajeunesse and Steven Severin, but Lajeunesse just confirmed that they aren’t currently planning on buying it:
“We have not sat down and put together any plans to buy it,” he says. “And we have not spoken to Stephanie. If the price was right, and the stars aligned, anything is possible, but we are not the group that is supposedly looking to buy it. And from what I have heard, she would not sell to us.”
