Friends,

I hope this e-mail finds you doing well. As you may know, the flagship restaurant in our dining group, Joe Momma's Pizza, suffered a disappointing loss this summer when a fire totally destroyed our eight year old restaurant. We're very sad at the loss of a place Tulsans have loved and supported for so long. Shortly after the fire, we got to work trying to solve the primary issue of how we could best take care of our tremendous group of employees, many of whom have been with us for many years. It didn't take long to work up a gameplan that involved using another space we owned just a couple of doors down. Many of you remember Back Alley Blue & BBQ and may have even dined at White Flag, a gourmet burger place that occupied the space after we chose to convert Back Alley. The space has mostly been used as a private venue in recent months, but was still outfitted with a full kitchen and dining room.

We decided the timing was right to relaunch the White Flag concept, but with the great staff we've been fortunate to develop at Joe Momma's. Tomorrow, we'll open at 11am, for our grand opening, just in time for the OU vs Texas football game with a full brunch menu, $2 mimosas, bloody mary bar, prizes, give-aways, and specials all day long. We'll end the night with live music from Nightengale during dinner and the Blue Dome Music series featuring Monochrome. Our prizes include a meat smoker, stainless steel cooler, Ghostland Observatory and J.D. McPherson tickets at Cain's Ballroom, WizardCon tickets and more, courtesy of our friends at Anheuser Busch.

We hope you'll come see us and check out the new and improved White Flag, while visiting some familiar and friendly faces you may remember from Joe Momma's. If you can't make it this weekend, we still love you. White Flag will be open every day from 11am to midnight and until 2am on the weekends. We offer a full menu of burgers, hot melts, wings, appetizers, and St. Louis and Detroit style pizzas. Additionally, we have a full bar featuring a large selection of local craft beers. We'll have trivia on Thursday nights, just like Joe Momma's did, live entertainment on weekends, and will offer private dining for your party in our separate Blue Ox Banquet Hall. 

We're very grateful to you all for your support over the years, and especially over the last few months as we've worked to pick up the pieces and start fresh. Expect to see Joe Momma's back and better than ever sometime early 2016, but in the meantime, we hope you'll really enjoy our newest offering in The Blue Dome District, White Flag Pub + Grub.

Thanks for being a part of our e-mail list. We appreciate your support and friendship.

Sincerely,

Blake Ewing
