There are a ton of memories circulating the web as people reflect on this pivotal downtown bar set (Bar-BQ Bar, Sky Sixty, Eye Spy) using the hashtags #ripbbqbar, #bbqbar, #bbqbooth and, of course, on Bar-BQ Bar's own Instagram, @barbqbar:
Despite the grave situation, Bar-BQ Bar still wants to party to the end, so this Saturday, they're having a Bittersweet 16 party at all three bars, and all are encouraged to come out and join the final countdown to the bar's closing on Aug. 31. (RSVP) While you're there, you may want to take stock of the many knick knacks and assorted items that clutter the bars, because later this month, there will be an auction of select items for those looking for a keepsake (perfect for nostalgic folks who met their partners at Bar-BQ Bar, turned 21 there, celebrated a new job with $2 wells, or just punched the clock on the patio week after week). We'll post information about the auction as soon as we get it.
