It's been over four years since fans of Vine Street Pub could get a taste of its beers, wings and burgers in the Uptown neighborhood, and now they'll have to wait a bit longer.

In March, Vine Street finally announced plans to reopen, promising a May 15 comeback. "Best news I’ve heard all year," wrote one Westword reader. But almost no restaurant opening (or reopening) ever happens as planned, and, not surprisingly, that date has since shifted.

"Vine Street Pub will be re-opening in early June!" reads the latest update, posted on Vine Street's Facebook page on May 9, along with a photo of some of the new staff in a training session.

While Vine Street's reopening won't come until next month, there could soon be other reasons to visit 1700 Vine Street before June. "We may have some exciting pop-ups in the next few weeks! Keep an eye on this space and on Instagram for more details!" the post continues.

Meanwhile, it seems that some who are hungry for Vine Street's return have become hangry. The message ends with a warning: "People who write mean and ugly comments will be blocked and are not welcome in the pub! How does the song go? 'Ain't no time for hate!'
