Zentek, who opened the East Village beer bar with Ray Deter in 1994, died last month after a fall. D.b.a. will open today, as usual, at 1 p.m., with the memorial service beginning at 4 p.m. at the nearby New York City Marble Cemetery. A New Orleans-style second-line parade will follow, as well as a celebration of Zentek’s life back at the bar. EV Grieve has the full details. [EV Grieve, Related]
