Popular Tempe college watering hole, Moonshine Whiskey Bar and Grill, will be shuttered as of June 1st, so tomorrow evening, from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. the Mill Avenue bar is hosting a going-out-of-business bash with a DJ and drink specials like $2 domestic beers and $3 imports.

There are rumors that the space is going into more of a re-branding than full-on closure, with talk of renovations and the opening of a new concept bar at the end of the summer.
