Banner headline Tuesday, Part Two: Fire claims Sam’s Food & Spirits.


Dear Friends of Sam’s

We have experienced a major fire at our New Albany location. If you
 had Christmas or other party reservations, please email or call 502-693-1210.

Please help us get the word out and forward to your address book.

There’ll be more information as to the fire itself, which broke out around midnight, after closing; the good news is that no one was hurt.

Both Sam Anderson an individual and Sam’s as a restaurant are iconic institutions in New Albany. How many local eateries have been in business for just shy of thirty years under the same name and ownership? Sam is the link between the Lancaster’s and South Sides of old, and the explosion of new dining and drinking establishments today.

To Sam, from all of us at NABC: Hang in there, good luck, and let us know if we can do anything to help.
