Closing!

Mars Bar, one of last East Village holdouts, is closing, reportedly for only two years....we've heard that before. It's surrounded by luxury condos, around the corner from the former CBGBS, now a John Varvatos eye sore. It's all over here kids...

And in those two years? What? Will it be totally rebuilt?

I don't know KM. I"m not so sure about this place. I'd have to have you as my bodyguard/boy toy, to escort me in here.

Now that's a bar with character - and probably full of characters too!

Wow, that's too bad.

Mark used to go here all the time. What happened to the weathervane?

Seems a pity - maybe it will be converted to a Venus bar...
