Lisa G Goes Out of Business on a Halloween High Note

It's Saturday morning. I really haven't had enough coffee yet. But there's nothing like big news to wake me up, and today's word is a shocker. 

Lisa G Cafe & Wine Bar is closing. Tonight -- Halloween -- is the last night of service.

Owner Lisa Giungo tells me, "It actually came out of nowhere. But somebody approached me to buy it."

Giungo adds that she hasn't been home to spend time with her family in Philadelphia in three years, and that this was a much-needed opportunity to take a break.

The paperwork is done but not signed yet. According to Giungo, new owner Matt Diamond -- formerly of Humble Pie, Cowboy Ciao, and Postino -- will be doing craft beers on tap, salads, and sandwiches. His Facebook profile says that The Main Ingredient Alehouse & Cafe is coming soon.
