Remember Laurie Toth, the entrepreneur who started the Saltwater Gypsy consignment store at The Lumberyard a few months ago?
Meet her boyfriend, Wayne Campbell.
Wayne moved to St. John a little more than a year ago, and after having fun bartending at Spyglass for a while, he was itching to start his own business. Which he has.
Wayne now runs The Barefoot Cowboy Lounge, on the consignment storeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Lumberyard porch, the same place that used to be PolliÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Mexican restaurant, next to the Lucky Pagoda.
Wayne serves homestyle lunch with daily specials like pulled pork sandwiches, brisket and red beans and rotisserie chicken and rice, all with a Texas twist. And heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s working on an idea heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s thinking of calling Family Night: a potluck dinner with a cash bar and dishes brought up by locals.
The Barefoot Cowboy is open Monday through Friday from 11 am to 7 pm.
