Holy cow! Walking by Spike and Charlie's this AM there was a liquor license transfer in the window next to a notice saying something like "hard to believe, but we have closed after 13 years." Seems the new owners wil open in early November. A name like "23rd Dimension" was mentioned (not sure about this - I was late for work and just scanned the notice).
Now I feel guilty for not going enough.
A loss for Mt. Vernon, Baltimore and Maryland cuisine. [sigh]
(FWIW, according to the notice, S&C are still operating Joy America.)
