It sounds like a Fringe show: Big wind from Tampa blows into town and swallows up the city’s hip freebie. Budgets get whacked. Production staff get one way tickets to Atlanta. Funny. Ha Ha. But the news released Tuesday is no joke. City Paper, along with Chicago’s Reader, have been sold to Tampa-based Creative Loafing. (whose production offices are in Atlanta.) We first read it in DCist. What will this mean for reviewers Trey, Bob and Greg? Hold on. It could be a bumpy ride.
