The Harmony Kitchen, the food vendor at the Yippie Museum Cafe, closed at the end of June ... At the time, it was unclear what would happen with 9 Bleecker Street, the longtime headquarters of the counterculture group and home to the cafe just a few storefronts west of the Bowery.
On June 10, Colin Moynihan at The New York Times reported that Yippie leaders have been fighting an attempt by a lender to foreclose on their three-story home.
The space has been shut all this month, with a "closed for re-calculating" sign up...
However, there's an additional sign now... noting that they space will reopen next Wednesday for performances and events, though without any food or coffee...
The sign says Harmony "packed their bags and split. They left many unanswered questions and bills."
