Lulu's closed too?

MS reader Fells Point Don posted this comment earlier today:

"Lulu's in Fells Point (pictured) abruptly closed its doors Friday night. Another great bar down the tube..."

I called Lulu's but no one picked up.

Don, do you have any contacts there?

Or, does anyone know what's going on?

Sam-It was a very odd Friday! I was at Friends on Aliceanna Street about 8PM when the bartender and several patrons started talking about how it was Lulus last night and that they were going to pay their final respects. There was no warning at all!! I've heard RUMORS that it was an unpaid rent issue but you never know. They've also had a few liquor license issues as well. The end result,though,is that i've lost one of my favorite hole-in-the-walls...

What's with all the closings?
I was at the Lulu's Final Farewells last Friday, i see that Clayton's Tavern closed its doors, I hear that Gardel's had their finale evening and I'm nervous about Shorty's since the ever present Orange Notice has been spied on their windows. What? Can this town no longer support THAT many bars? - and it really isn't THAT many bars!
