During makeover, which occurred earlier this years in January, Jon decided to change the name of Phish Heads to Phish Tales.
Phish Tales is owned and operated by Philip Crenshaw, his wife Toni and son James.
On the verge of bankruptcy and $250,000 in the hole, Philip and Toni are in a battle with their stubborn, lazy son James (bar manager), who is sinking the family business.
Taffer took to Twitter on January 11, 2018 inviting anyone in the Lack City, Florida area to drop by Phish Heads at 7:00 p.m. to watch him “Shut It Down.”
Who in the Lake City, FL area would like to see me #ShutItDown?
At 7pm EST come to Phish Heads 1445 SW Main Blvd #170, Lake City, FL 32025. You won't want to miss this!
