There was a big fire last wednesday, (*sob*), (*choke*), it started in the art studio next door to Cafe Lola, (**sob**), (tries to be brave), and well, although Lola wasn't damaged much by the flames directly, the fire dept ended up having to do a bit of damage to Lola's premises (mostly the ceiling ...).
The new gal who owns Lola isn't sure what to do, repairs would last months, she might just permanently close, she might just relocate. Random acts like this--they make you lose faith in higher powers over what's good and true. Were you looking for a flimsy excuse to drink today? Well, here ya go.
