Walter's Is Definitely Moving, Owner Confirms

Pam Robinson, owner of Walter's on Washington, has been keeping busy.

"I've been working on this since the first week of February," Robinson said of her plans to move the longtime Washington Avenue music venue to a new location. "I signed all the contracts, I presented all the plans to the city, and I'm still waiting for permits.

"I don't know why it takes so long," she added with a sigh.

She's trying to be patient, but like many of the club's patrons, she's ready to get off of the Washington strip.
