    Manitoba's NYC Has Closed It's Doors

    Had a ton of fun here a few times with Alison, Ian, Horace, John Gargo, Noland, and a few others. A great bar with a rockin jukebox and some amazing memorabilia on the walls. And, of course, Handsome Dick behind the bar at times, though I did enjoy afternoon drinking marathons with his wife Zoe. I did avoid it last time I was there after Zoe claimed to have been beaten up and choked by HDM, but it was a funky place to have been; no doubt it's closing brings the Lower East Side a step closer to total gentrification.

    This one stings a bit. We had our pre-wedding party there and, as you say, a lot of good times even if things got fucked up with HDM and Zoe in the last days.

    RIP to one of the best fucking bars in the city.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    It really was. I'll treasure that picture of my parents with HDM until my dying day.

    Your mom yelling, "This way!" to the train, and you saying, "But you don't know where you are!"

    A real damn shame. I feel bad for HDM. I hope he's got something to do moving forward, besides his band if it ever takes off.
