Remember in early June, when I reported on the closing of Sucker Punch Sally's?
The official word at that time was that the restaurant was only temporarily closed, due to air conditioning problems, and that it would reopen in September.
It struck me as odd that an almost brand-new restaurant would close for three months for A/C issues, and one of my sources told me that Sally was actually, truly kaput.
So here it is, folks: a "For Lease" sign that just went up in the Mill Avenue space.
