Bob & Barbara’s Closed!

Bob & Barbara’s closed.

The hordes of devotees of the $3 Jim Beam and Pabst “Special” at legendary South Street dive Bob & Barbara’s will have to go elsewhere for their booze for the time being as the bar was closed by L&I on Friday night for a variety of violations. Something about extension cords and a blocked fire exit. Management tells us that they hope to be reopened by the weekend. In the meantime, check out a photo exhibit of Bob & Barbara’s shots at Amble Gallery through August 3rd.

UPDATE (7/31): No word on when Bob & Barbara’s will reopen, but certainly not this weekend. Workers are in there now trying to get the venue up to code. In yesterday’s Metro, one neighbor likened L&I to the Gestapo.
