It's closing time!

So let's start a run down on all the bars closing in Ohio lately:
• Cincinnati's TopCat is gonna close.
• Little Brother's closed in Columbus
• The Lime Spider is closing in Akron (eh, that place was always impossible to book anyway)
• I'll add more as I think of them

Ray of light?
• Ah, but Toledo just re-opened Frankie's Inner City venue. Let's hope it doesn't become a goth metal bar again.
• I guess Cincinnati's Alchemize is keeping it's name and not changing it to Decibel Lounge - thankfully Nick Spencer is apparently still not going to be a part of it anymore.

Have you been back to Frankies since it reopened? Never was a "Goth Metal bar"....

I should clarify that I have NOT been to Frankie's since it re-opened.
But the bar was MOST DEFINITELY geared toward goth and metal back in the day. It slowly became that way, for some weird reason. Don't get me wrong, I love Frankie's. I hope for its continued success.
But a bar filled with teenage goth kids tearing apart the ceiling and screaming about their dads was not something I enjoyed seeing, every time I went there.
Of course, they learned it from watching Detroit.
