The Isotope's Bon Vivant Blasts Off
To Conquer the New Frontier

It is always with a heavy heart that we let a member of our family leave the loving arms of the Isotope and go out into the cruel world, but at the same time we can't help but cheer when we think of the successes awaiting that individual. And so, my dear friends, it is both with a manly tear in our eye and a joyous raising of our collective glasses that we announce that our beloved Bon Vivant, Ian Yarborough, is leaving our nest and going out to conquer new horizons in his unmistakable style.

As he goes, we'd all like to sincerely thank him for his years of tireless dedication to putting great books in the people's hands, dazzling us with his endless wit and wisdom, and working side-by-side with us through both the best of times and the back-breaking labor of constructing a truly beautiful Fell St. location. And throughout it all, making it more fun than work has any right to be thanks to his characteristic air of Southern charm.

And now, Mister Yarborough will be applying that same hard work and loving attention to what can only be described as his dream job. Along with his roommates, Mark and Big Dan, our former Bon Vivant finally has a restaurant and club all of his own to craft however he chooses. Be sure to check out a whole new universe of cool concerts, fine foods, and endlessly hip happenings that Restaurant and Bar Manager Ian is helping bring to life at the 23 Club.

We're sad to see him go... but we couldn't be happier for him. Best of luck, Ian!
