About 1,000 people have e-mailed, texted, smoke-signaled and asked in person why I would refer to Jerry Meyer as the owner of Patio Pizza when Patio Pizza closed around three years ago. Here's the answer: Working in haste.
So, to clarify, Meyers has leased his building, where he operated Patio Pizza , to U.S. Pizza since closing Patio. Now, he's sold the restaurant to outright to the U.S. Pizza chain, owned by Judy Waller.
The Fair Park Residents Association notified its members in an e-mail about the transaction, which Meyers told us about earlier this week but asked us to wait until the sale had gone through before publishing. The restaurant will continue to be made available to the residents association for its Saturday morning monthly meetings.
