From the "dashboard", you had an entry on "Good Night Irenes in Wildwood", but when selected it says no longer there. Any idea what happened to it?

I finally got there in May, and was pleasantly surprised of the nice variety of craft beer they had. Friendly staff, only negative was the customers got louder as the night went on and bar activity changed. Haven't gotten back there, but hope to soon.
