Fan signage for Lucy's

Upon reading about the latest developments at Lucy's (aka Blanche's Lucy's Tavern), 135 Avenue A, EVG regular Lola Sáenz created this handpainted signage.

As first reported yesterday, someone painted over the Lucy's signage at the bar between St. Mark's Place and Ninth Street. Worse, though, the building recently sold, and the new landlord wants a rent increase that Lucy can't afford. Read more here.

Updated 5:30 p.m.: Stacie Joy reports someone already removed Lola's sign.

My to-be-husband declared his love for me right outside Lucy's when we stepped outside for a smoke almost 30 years ago. Sad to see this romantic spot ;) driven out of business.
