Grub Street's Saturday-afternoon plans to down $3 shots of Jack amid the puke-reeking confines of Welcome to the Johnsons were quashed when we found the bar's gates down and those telltale orange signs plastered on them. It seems the dive is the latest victim in the string of underage-drinking shutdowns that closed Mason Dixon and have affected even the hood's mellowest watering holes. Bowery Boogie also noticed the shutter and dug up a Friday-night tweet from one Jeffrey Neville, who reported that ten officials arrived to shut the bar down. For a place that tries to re-create the feeling of drinking in your parents' basement, it must've felt like mom and dad finally caught on.
