I heard a rumor that Great Lakes, the bar on 5th Ave in Park Slope, is closing and Blue Ribbon is taking over the space. Apparently the landlord didn't renew the bar's lease-- he'd already cut a deal with the Blue Ribbon guys. How disappointing that one of the businesses that helped to make 5th Ave fashionable is now a victim to its own success.
I am guessing that Blue Ribbon is going to add a Blue Ribbon Bakery to its 5th Avenue mini-empire.
Anyone hear anything else?
