Apologies and thanks
Ferndale’s Otus Supply shuttered with little notice at the end of February. The restaurant, located at 345 E. Nine Mile Road, was known for its wood fired pizzas, burgers and their music venue – The Parliament Room. A post on Otus Supply’s Facebook page didn’t give any explanation for the closure but apologized to staff and thanked patrons. The post read, “It is with great sadness and sorrow that we have very unfortunate news. Effective immediately we will be closing our doors to our wonderful, beautiful establishment. We thank each and every one of you for the years of patronage. From the togetherness, great food, cocktails and live music we’ve been able to supply to all of you we are so very thankful. To our amazing staff we’ve been able to build out of Covid-19, we sincerely apologize and wish you nothing but the best in your futures. No one knows what the future holds but this is goodbye for now,” The post received an overwhelmingly outpouring of shock, love and support from hundreds patrons as well as several musicians who had performed there.
