Aaaand I'm back!
At least for a week or two. Then it's off to the honeymoon, when you'll be subjected to more guest posts. But for now, Sam Sessa is back in action.
I see at least one person missed me while I was gone. Even though the rest of you didn't comment about missing me, I'm sure you all cried yourselves to sleep every night. Right?
While I was away, Midnight Sun commenter Jay Trucker e-mailed me about Kelly's (2108 Eastern Ave.). He went there this past Saturday, and saw a sign on the door that said "Kelly's will be closed until further notice."
That's usually the kiss of death for a bar/restaurant ...
I called the place, but the phone kept ringing. I'll try calling again this afternoon. Anybody know more?
I always meant to get to Kelly's, but never had the pleasure. I know commenter jmgiordano was a fan of the place. jmgiordano, do you know anything about it closing? Jay Trucker also liked Kelly's. In his e-mail, he wrote:
I am hopeful that they will re-open because Kelly's, thoughy dive-y and redneck-y in many ways, was also a fun and inexpensive place to drink and sing karaoke on the weekends. The place had lots of character.
Who can tell me what's going on?
