Interested in buying Bel Air’s Crackpot or Abingdon’s Country Kitchen at auction? Both go on the block in the next few weeks.

It’s official. The Crackpot Restaurant — closed since last January — goes to auction at 11 a.m. Oct. 21. BANV drove by today and saw the big yellow signs. Alex Cooper Auctioneers is handling the auction and offers extensive info on the sale on its website. Click here to see it. The website says it will have an open house at the restaurant so prospective buyers can tour the property from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 17.

And I noticed while checking out the Alex Cooper website that the closed Country Kitchen in Abingdon is also going to be auctioned by Alex Cooper. Its auction is scheduled 11 a.m. on Nov. 14. So, if you’re in the market for snatching up defunct Harford County restaurants, you have plenty of opportunities just now.
