You may not have heard, but the crown jewel of Paula Deen’s brother’s empire, Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House, abruptly announced its end last week. Aside from unexpectedly throwing Uncle Bubba’s workforce onto the unemployment line, the closure has led to putting another person in a tough spot. She deserves better, too.
Colleen Sheffield booked her reception at Uncle Bubba’s for her October wedding. Now she’s scrambling to find a new venue.
“I’ve called 80 people, and I can’t find a venue anywhere because October is a prime wedding month,” said Sheffield.
And it’s not just the month that is the problem.
“I picked a bye week for Georgia [football],” she said. “Like any Savannah Southern girl, you plan it around SEC football.”
Amen to that, sister. Hope things work out.
