Longtime East Village resident Abby Ehmann fulfilled a dream and opened her first bar back in early July.
Now tomorrow (Saturday), Ehmann is hosting the official grand opening of Lucky at 168 Avenue B between 10th Street and 11th Street. (The space was home to Boxcar, which closed in February after 18 years in business.)
Ehmann aspires to foster a sense of community at Lucky. To date, the bar has provided space for Gays Against Guns' poster and t-shirt painting parties, Waggytail Rescue's adoption socials and other gatherings, including memorials.
She also says that she "hopes to attract people who feel unwelcome or out of place at the many newer East Village establishments."
The bar opens at noon. (Free pizza is expected around 6 or 7 p.m. tomorrow.)
