Evening's Empire Turns into Sand at the Abbey Pub
By Caitlin Hawke
Maybe you've been there for a burger. A pint. Both.
It's got just what you need it to have: A specials board chocked with deals. A classic pub array of brews. Live music. Cozy decor.
A port in a storm. A hangout for pals.
Best of all: zero pretense.
Well, clench your fist as that handful of evening empire's sand spills through your grasp. And try not to salt your suds, because it's all over baby Bloomingdalers.
The Abbey Pub has been doing its thing since 1969. And now you have just six days to say fare thee well to this neighborhood mainstay, our local Cheers.
The announcement came through on Facebook just hours ago:
I really could go on (and go off) about this. But I think I'll leave it at "Res ipsa loquitur."
Denial? I got something for you! Tuesday night, you can catch some live music at 8 p.m.
I give you Abbey Lincoln as my outro. (If you receive this via email, click here to listen to Abbey).
