The Grange’s Darren Comer alerts us to an odd set of circumstances that is causing the three siblings (Jen, Darren and Colin) who own The Grange Public House to change its name.
Darren provided me with a note that’s already been sent to staff, which you can read after the jump. However, beyond that he wants everyone in the Decatur/Atlanta community to know that the Comers haven’t gone (and aren’t going) anywhere, and that instead of getting involved in a drawn out legal confrontation over name rights, or give up their status as a truly independent business, they’ve decided to bite the bullet, change the name, and move on.
In fact it’s pretty evident that they’ve already moved on. They’ve already started a “Rename the Grange” contest where you can win $500 in “Renamed Grange cash” if your new name for the Pub Formerly Known as The Grange is selected as the pub’s new identifier.
Read Darren’s note to staff, which provides a few more details, after the jump.
Darren writes in with a report and some pics from a wild and crazy day of filming at The Grange.
About 3 times as many people and stuff showed up then what I expected for the 1.5 minute scene at the pub! Amazing as 5 people have speaking parts it means they shoot the scene 5 times with at least 5 different angles!
All very professional and amazingly fast at setting up – the slow downs were the lighting and artistic guys getting the shots the way they wanted them. That was Tyler Perry’s black RV by the dumpsters. The other cast were bussed in from nearby hotels.
The Decatur neighborhood pub was originally slated only to be closed Tuesday, but the unexpected death of brother Michael has altered Janet’s schedule. Therefore filming will take place Monday, but the Grange will remained closed both days.
