Get Your Piece of the Pony: Online Bidding for the Recently Closed Pink Pony in Scottsdale Begins Today
The Pink Pony officially closed last year, and while most of the iconic baseball hangout's memorabilia is long gone, all of the practically brand-new, post-renovation decor and kitchen equipment is up for grabs during an online auction that begins today.
How about bidding on your very own cage-enclosed wood stone gas? The only trick would be getting it home.
Added to Scottsdale's Historic Register in 2004, the restaurant changed hands several times over the course of its life, most recently in 2013, when it was purchased by Mark Shugrue. It reopened in 2014 as a modernized, bright "new American" version of itself, fans of the scrappy original space mourned what they viewed as the death of the Pink Pony. It closed for good little more than a year later.
Though the facelift didn't suit the scrappy, old-school sports bar, the awesome oversize mirrors that hung in the modern dining room might look amazing in your loft, and with the opening bid starting at $5, you might end up with a total steal.
These mirrors would look better in your place than they ever did at The Pony.
Check out the website and start bidding online today and go walk through the restaurant and bid on what's left on May 30, the final day of the auction, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
