On the heels of yesterday’s news of Zeppelin closing, I’ve discovered that a handful of other bars will soon be shutting their doors for good. And this is sad news. On the Grim Reaper’s list are Tink’s Pub, Third Avenue Café (although it hasn’t been confirmed, but they’ve been closed the last few days) and Derby City Espresso. Tink’s last party will be New Year’s Eve. What are we lesbians gonna do? Oh yeah, frequent the hipster joints and dive bars, of course. And Derby City Espresso’s last day will be Dec. 8, although owner Matthew Landan hints that it’s not over for the space at 331 E. Market St.
I guess we should keep our fingers crossed and hope new proprietors move in and open something new. If I had the money, I’d totally turn Zeppelin into Purr. Anyone got some cash I can borrow?
