The shop, stolen from the Mojo's website.
Wade Beesley, founder of Mojo’s Daily Grind on Guadalupe, sent out an e-mail this week:
“Well, April 15th was a very big day for me. I closed on the sale of Mojo’s, put a down payment on a house, got tattooed, shaved my head, and a did few other non-mentionables.
“Yep that’s right, I’ve sold Mojo’s— 10 years, 1 month, and 12 days after I opened the beloved shop. I sold it to guy named John Wallace—very cool, used to own the 2 rock gyms here in town. he wants to keep it the same and just put in some money and new energy. What now? Well I’m walking away with a chunk of change, buying a house on the east side, taking a metal and wood class this summer, doing some traveling, and NOT WORKING for several months. This has all been a long time coming and I’m very exited. hope you are all doing well. Write me back and let me know what’s up.”
I first came to Mojo’s with Mason during the summer after my sophomore year of high school and have been a regular customer ever since. Hopefully the place will only get better, because Austin would be truly worse off without it.
