No sign of life at Nevada Smiths

As we first reported on Tuesday, the Marshal has seized Nevada Smiths on Third Avenue between East 12th Street and East 13th Street.

We walked by this morning… a time when the place would normally be open showing various matches (Chelsea v. Arsenal???). There aren't any signs on the front doors noting the closure. The Marshal's notice remains. Oh, well there is an empty jug of ketchup and two signs for a band on the sidewalk...

We haven't heard any other updates on the situation here. This is the bar's official message:

In April, DNAinfo reported that a New Jersey bank filed suit against Nevada Smiths after the bar failed to make the last four payments on a $150,000 loan.

They have some stiff competition with some 50,000 bars in the surrounding area.

Not that anyone that has drunk here would care this is where the name "Nevada Smith" comes from.
