Reminders: Motor City Bar will be burning today (and tonight)

Here's a reminder about Motor City Bar's closing-night party that we first mentioned back on April 30...

From the EV Grieve inbox...

The once vibrantly creative and bohemian Lower East Side is a thing of the past, with the final nail in the coffin coming next month, when Motor City Bar closes its doors for the last time. The bar is open over the next few weeks, so make sure you stop by for a few cocktails in the meantime.

On Sunday, June 23rd, come and celebrate 17 years of sex, drugs and rock n roll with some of the best people you'd ever care to meet. Come and give a long kiss goodbye to the amazing owners, bartenders, dancers, DJs, Detroit memorabilia, and those infamous bathrooms!

A big thank you to all those who have lived, loved, laughed, cried, danced, yelled, fallen down, met future partners, found jobs, been inspired, or just generally had a great time in this wonderful establishment these past two decades. To say it will be sorely missed would be an understatement. RIP.

Note: The bar will remain open until midnight on the 30th of June, when the keys are finally handed over.

...are you telling us that we're losing another bar? Maybe I should have moved to Florida.

One of my old hangouts, one less place to visit when I come back. Hate to even think what's going to move in there.

Every time a place closes, someone describes it as the final nail in the coffin. At this point, the coffin is more nails than wood.
