Our gratitude goes out the brave service members in the Tyler Fire Department. Once again, we are reminded of how lucky we are to be able to count on them during times of need. They provided an immediate response to our Tuesday morning call of a fire seen from the vent pipe on the roof of the Smoke Shack. This unexpected setback was quickly contained and extinguished by the Fire Department preventing the blaze from reaching any other areas outside from the originated source. Most of the fire occurred withing the vent pipe and the visible flames were caused by a rubber gasket that was burning due to the intense heat. Thankfully, no one was harmed and the damage was minimal.
In addition to our appreciation to the Tyler Fire Department, we’d like to extend a huge thank you to our East Texas community! We are overwhelmed by the support given to us by the public, shortly after news breaking out, we received a number emails and messages expressing concern. We are truly blessed to be part of such a caring community.
The Smoke Shack structure is unaffected by the incident with only a few repairs to take place on the roof. Unfortunately, this still requires an interruption of service in the Smoke Shack. Updates to follow soon, once more information on repair schedules come our way. The rest of The Grove property (main bar, main restaurant, Grab N’ Go Market and Greenhouse Events) will remain open and continue to operate at normal hours.
All Smoke Shack related events will move to the main restaurants. Trivia Tuesday’s take place in the “Alice in Wonderland” patio. Take advantage of our specials in our patio while enjoying games of corn hole, ping pong, oversized jinga, tic tac toe and dominos. Sunday’s Industry Night will be in the main bar from 7pm to 10pm.
