Doors Close on Essex St. Pub

Word is that the SLA closed down the venerable Essex St. Pub yesterday. Apparently, while recently deceased Peter Goretti had partners in his other two operations, the Tralf and Showplace Theatre, the Pub was a sole proprietorship. With Peter gone there is no longer a proprietor to hold a liquor license. It was bad enough losing Peter, now one of the city’s most colorful watering spots is gone, as well.
