Crossgates Mall has been adding and changing to offer us more and more but one of their recent announcements was just abandoned and will no longer be coming.

The Times Union is announcing that the previously announced Waxy's — The Modern Irish Bar will no longer be coming to Crossgates Mall. Crossgates announced about two years ago that Waxy's would be coming to the mall on the first floor below FunnyBone. After no new news and a lack of construction, it did seem strange. The restaurant was partially built but stopped when the parent company started struggling financially.

This was supposed to be the first Capital Region location of the franchise but other locations around the country seem to be closing too. No word yet on any new businesses coming to that spot but they will be auctioning off furniture, fixtures, and more from a Kingston, MA location but handled by the local Collar City Auctions. You can contact them through Friday.
