TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Two longtime staples of Tampa's Channelside district will be closing their doors for the final time this week.  Stumps Supper Club and Howl at the Moon will both end their run on Saturday, according to a press release from Stumps.

Stumps has been one of the anchors of the Channelside Bay Plaza complex since 2001.  It's owned, along with Howl at the Moon, by an affiliate of the groups that own and operate Splitsville Luxury Lanes, Tinatapa's and The Boathouse -- also in Channelside.

"Stump's Supper Club was the original concept that opened in Channelside and was the real catalyst in the development of the project," said Guy Revelle, one of the ownership principals.

"We are disappointed that our original Channelside concepts have completed their impressive run, but we are excited about the opportunities over the next decade," added Mark Gibson, another partner.

The two eateries are closing to make way for as-yet-unspecified changes in the entertainment district, which was expected to be sold to Lightning owner Jeff Vinik sometime this summer.

Stumps plans to hold a 'grand retirement and yard sale party' Saturday.  A portion of the proceeds will go to the Open Arms Ministry at Hyde Park Methodist Church.
