Sconnies, formerly Bug Eyed Betty’s, will now be called Wisco’s

Eau Claire (WQOW) – The former Bug Eyed Betty’s location will have its second new name before even reopening its doors.

David Burg, owner of Wagner’s Lanes, Stout Ale House, Broadway Bowl and Thirsty Badger leased the business back in February and named it Sconnies Eau Claire.

Burg told News 18 Thomas Stuart, who owned Bug Eyed Betty’s, will continue to own the building, but Burg and his team will lease the property.

Signs saying “Sconnies” went up outside of the building and a Facebook page was created, but now owners have changed the name.

Several News 18 viewers reached out to us asking why new signs were going up at the business.

So, New 18 reached out to Burg who told us they made the change for marketing reasons. He said Wisco’s gave them the best option so they decided to change.

Burg said they are working on a public soft opening within the next week.
