Historic Regas Restaurant will auction off items

Knoxville, Tenn. (WVLT) -- You might be able to take your favorite memories from the historic Regas restaurant with you.

The restaurant will auction off everything from furniture to the former owner's personal favorite, a 400-year-old cheese cart from the Swiss-Italian border.

You can take a sneak peek at the items on Wednesday, April 27th from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The auction starts at 10 a.m. sharp the next day, Thursday, April 28th.

The Regas closed its doors for good at the end of 2010. It opened back in 1919.

"It is emotional after 91 years, but our restaurant made it longer than any other restaurant, and we're the oldest in the state," says former owner Bill Regas.
