Bamn!, closed for at least a week, has yet to reopen, and EV Grieve reports that Ryan’s Irish Pub, nearby, is also down. Meanwhile the new bar in the long-shuttered Mo Pitkins space has been christened Aces & Eights (free happy hour!). Chances it has a TV, unlike the conversation-friendly pubs profiled in the Times? 100 percent. Update: Eater hears Bamn may become an outpost of Michael Hunynh’s Baoguette.
