Rumors were swirling that Froggy Bottoms was closing, but owner Laurie Hoheisel said that's far from the truth.
Seven months after reopening, Froggy Bottoms River Pub has new ownership—kind of. The Froggy Ladies, who resurrected the pub after it closed following the 100-year flood in the fall of 2010, have split, according to Laurie Hoheisel, one half of the former duo. Hoheisel is now Froggy's sole proprietor, having bought out partner Shannon Mills. A deal that made Hoheisel the sole owner of Froggy Bottoms was completed on Friday. As rumor of the buyout made its way through Northfield the past few weeks, Hoheisel said there was a misconception that Froggy Bottoms was closing, which she said is far from the truth. “I have heard it from customers, people on the street and college students,” Hoheisel told Patch. But it’s just another chapter in the …
