Two closings

edgar'sGot word of two closures over the holiday weekend.

Edgar's (pictured), the billiards club at Pratt and Light streets, is closed, a MS tipster said.

Word on the street is they couldn't settle on a new lease and their landlord kicked 'em out.

Also, I heard that Dubai, the new club managed by Palma owner Jon Han was closed this weekend. It will be reopening under new management in the near future, I understand.

I can't say I'm surprised either of these spots shut down. Edgar's was hard to find from the street, which meant little foot traffic. And I called Dubai's closure a couple weeks ago. It opened in early August. Talk about a short run.

Anybody know about Red Fish on Boston?

Is "Bartenders" taking over Charlotte's, Sam, or what?

Maybe we should do a dead pool to see which bars are going to close by the end of this year or next year and everybody can ante up!

Which bar is next?

And I thought Fletcher's was going to change names?

Red Fish is supposedly changing hands back to its previous owner since the new one defaulted on payments. Not sure what's happening with it, but I hope they bring back their brunch specials.

If I were a betting man, would say the next place to close is Huckas. Or Lagers.

Huckas or Lagers won't be closing any time soon now that football is starting up both professional and local social leagues. Those places are packed on the weekends all day. I wonder how long Pur will last now that summer is over.

On a good note: Dizzy Izzy's is back open. It looks like they renamed the place "The Diz" (lame). No idea what has changed yet though.
