Sammark’s Bars Shut Down
Bad news for you barhoppers: the PA Liquor Control Board shut down Tony’s Big Easy, Lulu’s Nightspot, and Candy Bar & Lounge over the weekend.
Owned by Sammark Inc., this trio of bars closed its doors back in July, only to reopen again in August. Swarms of legal paperwork pester the bars like mosquitoes on a tired zebra.
Sammark Inc. has tried to gain the approval of the PLCB but to no avail. The Collegian reports that the status of the bars is in limbo. Due to the flipflopping that’s already occurred, no one really knows what will happen.
For the time being, these Pugh Street establishments are closed and devoid of their usual merry crowd. Utter your elegies and take your business elsewhere.
