Unsubstantiated rumor - Bar closings and more

Where would we be without unsubstantiated rumor? Oh sure you could rely on only having the "facts" but where's the fun in that?

Fitzpatrick's on the way out?

Fitzpatrick's, at 310 E. Prentiss, has been having slow business for quite a while now, and their liquor stocks are getting lower each day. Fitzpatrick's liquor license is set to expire in early November of this year, and the Insider has it on reasonably good authority that the licensee will not seek renewal. Rumor has it that a bidding war between some current local bar owners may erupt to try and acquire the location in November.

So Long First Avenue Club?

First Avenue Club, at1550 S. 1st Ave, a longtime East Iowa City bar and probably the only country&western bar in the city, may close or move this summer. Exact dates are unknown, but rumor is that the owner is seeking possible alternate locations. Maybe he'll shoot for Fitzy's old spot?

Send your unsubstantiated rumors this way!
