A couple days ago, I reported that Old Town Scottdale's Lyte Lounge had just closed, and that a dueling piano might be filling the void.
Yep, it's true. Former Lyte operator Robert Burghart tells me that he's involved in a joint venture called Howl at the Moon, a "rock and roll dueling piano show" with 13 locations across the country, mostly in the Midwest and on the East Coast.
Their target opening date is June.
