Joe Jr.'s is Closed

On Sunday, M.B. and I returned from a lovely weekend with friends at the beach.  We had to return our rental car to the Hertz in Union Square.  Since we were in his old 'hood, we literally bumped into the saddest news ever... Joe Jr.'s is closed!  M.B. had many meals with the owners (where he was known as "Cage").  This was also our emergency meeting spot in the city since everyone knows him and they are always friendly.  

Fortunately, we were able to see Greg, the owner's son, and give him our best.  He said that they would probably re-open somewhere else after the landlord ended their 45-year-old lease. They mentioned a url that they would set-up to post updates.  If anyone has it, please share.  We are very saddened by this rude news.
