Kate is currently in arrears with the landlord. Eviction notices have been sent, court appearances have been made, and if a substantial amount of money is not raised by April 11th, the next court date, the doors will shut permanently at Kate’s Joint.
Tomorrow night, a group of fans and neighbors are planning on throwing a party of sorts there starting at 7 (and going till midnight or so).
According to the Facebook events page (where you can RSVP and what not):
Come by on Wednesday for by a wide variety of healthy meals, just a couple drinks, or the only veggie wings to land on NY Mag's Top 5 Hot Wings list! It might be kind of fun to pack the restaurant with new and old friends for a night.
If you can't make it Wednesday, please thinking about having a meal there soon!
One of the party planners told us, "I live on the block and want to put up as much of a fight as possible. Losing Kate's will make me feel like there is just not hope for the hood..."
