WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Adrian Simpson, co-owner of Wah Gwaan Diner in White Sulphur Springs, said he wasn’t going to go to extremes planning for the crowds coming to the area because of A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier, the PGA Tour golf tournament previously called The Greenbrier Classic.

“I don’t know exactly what to expect,” Simpson said. “We’ll definitely prepare a little bit more than we normally do, but we’re not going to go overboard because we pride ourselves on making fresh food daily, so we’re not going to over-make food and it possibly might not sell.”

Simpson’s Jamaican restaurant is less than a mile drive from The Greenbrier resort’s front doors. It opened in late July 2017, after the 2017 Greenbrier Classic was held. He said this makes it difficult for him to know for sure how the tournament will affect his restaurant.
