The Last Resort is still serving. It is a great place to be if you want to chill for an evening.

yes its still there and most of us locals still reside there hootie still driving his tractor sence terri wont let him go to far now carol passed several years ago and cowboy and terri keeps the faith in the old last resort. the rest of us fool have tried to grow up before we die of kidney failure or dui whichever comes first and for the rest of the old country folks are resting in peace. but still we had a lot of memories there good and bad so keep it between the ditches folks

Remembering really good times in Athens - and at the Last Resort in particular. Love reading these comments - how is Hootie, Rusty, Possum, Hobbit and everyone else who had such a fantastic nickname? I've driven by the Last Resort a couple of times over the years but haven't had an opportunity to actually stop in. I graduated from Concord College ("best 7 or 8 years of your life";->) in 1992 (clearly eons ago!). But I really loved the cultural experience I had there - wish I could claim to be from West Virginia - but got there as soon as I could! Wonderful people
