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 store’s Lumberyard porch, the same place that used to be Polli’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 he’s working on an idea he’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.
