"Joe's is only closed temporarily"

As we posted yesterday, the great Joe's Bar on Sixth Street between Avenue A and Avenue B has been closed the last few days...



However! Jeremiah received the following response about Joe's on his Facebook fan page:

i can deliver GOOD news to you from a very reliable inside source -- Joe's is only closed temporarily -- some little insurance snafu but they will return in full force - don't know when -- stayed tuned. (we can't lose more places, i'm starting not to recognize my own hometown anymore). ugh.

The city is quickly fading, started with Times Square and then rapidly took over, demolished and changed the Lower East Side. I've lived through them both. You would hardly recognize it any more. Sad...

I hope this source is right...Joe's is one of my favorite low-key neighborhood places.

I love this joint, the bartenders are like old friends. Great pickles

THANK THE BAR GODS! Don't think I could have survived yet another awesome EV institution closing down. Three Cheers for Joe's!
