While I was away ...

Charlotte's closed. Bartender Biff Baker moved to Junior's Wine Bar ... Don't Know Tavern finally got some air conditioning ... Fab Five Friday: Best Fake Bar Names will come out in a couple days ... MS reader Jayson beat me to the Hammerjack's sign ... and last but certainly not least, someone claiming to be Jenna Bush commented on Midnight Sun. maybe we're finally moving up in the world ... Did I miss anything?

I drive by and saw some work being done on Banjara. Do you know anything as far as who owns it now. Not too long ago the owner of Sky Lounge wasn't allowed to buy it.

Sessa... Your slacking. No more vacations for you.

I am glad that Mr. Zink finally stepped up to the plate and cooled things down. I was tired of getting pit stains on my Affliction shirts.

p.s. - Anyone go to the cookout at Muir's last night? Brother must have been out there cook'n dogs.

Does anyone know what happened at Metropolitan Cafe on Charles St.? Went to go get a coffee this morning and it said closed due to fire. So sad, wondering what happened. Anyone have an idea?

Yes, I posted on it a couple hours ago. Details are sketchy. But it was open until at least midnight Saturday night, I understand.
