As of Sunday, Oct. 3, Roca Bar North on Highway 41 in Evansville, Indiana, will be closed.

Officials with the restaurant/bar announced the closure in a post on Facebook and said that the COVID-19 pandemic had played a part in the decision to shut down for good.

"Roca Bar North owners and staff would like to thank the Northside Communities for all of your support over the last 11 years," the post said. "Unfortunately, we have decided to close our doors effective October 3rd. We have continued to struggle with a staffing shortage during Covid 19 and are unable to continue with our daily operations."

In its Facebook post, the restaurant asked patrons to pay one last visit before the closure. "Please come see us one last time before we close the doors and share your memories!"

A line of sustained to heavy rainfall is expected to push northeastward across the Tri-State between the hours 7AM and 11AM Thursday morning; be sure to pack an umbrella early tomorrow, as that timeline will fall during your morning commute Thursday. After the initial line of rain exits east of the region, we'll continue to see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Thursday afternoon and evening. Unfortunately, the same can be said for our Friday - lower pressure slowly spinning eastward will stall the rainfall and prolong our precip chances as we head into Friday afternoon and evening. It looks as though those chances of rainfall throughout our Friday will be sporadic at best and shouldn't lead to any significant disruption to those Friday night football games.
