Word began circulating on Twitter and other online forums over the weekend that Vivian's Vineyards (1409 North Second Street, St. Charles; 636-940-8444)
had closed. When Gut Check called the restaurant this afternoon, owner Jim Ogden
confirmed that last Thursday, June 30, was the restaurant's final day of operation.
For now, at least, the Vivian's Vineyards website
remains active, so you can still read the restaurant's entertaining history
