Longworth's to serve last meal

        Longworth's restaurant in Mount Adams will close Sunday and the building will be auctioned Sept. 27, owners said Friday.

        Lori Schutte, who owns the St. Gregory Street eatery with her husband, Art, said the restaurant will serve its last meal Sunday night.

        “We're just tired, and we want a life for a change,” she said.

        Colliers Turley Martin Tucker Auction Service will offer the building, furniture and fixtures, with a minimum starting bid for the building of $426,667, said Bob Gettis, director of auction services.

        One potential buyer, Art Lykins, had a tentative deal to buy Longworth's earlier this summer. But the Schuttes did not accept that offer, Lori Schutte said.

        She said the couple had not lost money since they teamed with a partner to buy Longworth's in 1995, but had poured plenty of money into the operation.
