For Want of a Nail

There is a bar on Avenue B just below East 7th Street called Manitoba's. Its name comes from the Province of Manitoba, in Canada. It's very popular with Canadians.

At least, it was. Sources tell me that it is now closed. Forever. The story is that someone sued them for not being in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The amount they won was very little, but Manitoba's had to pay the lawyer's fee also, which was considerable.

This was Manitoba's on Saturday:

Here is the sign indicating that they should be open (it was already 1:30pm):

This was Manitoba's tonight:

For want of a ramp, the bar was lost…
