Meatpacking super dive Hogs & Heifers will be packing up its bras for good and leaving its home of 23 years this Sunday. The bar is the latest victim of Thor [Equities]'s hammer, which bought the building housing the bar in 2013 then jacked up the rent from $14,000 per month to $60,000 per month. A dispiriting "prime retail space available" sign can currently be seen outside. Ugh.

The scene around 9 p.m. last night was spirited, with the midriff-baring bar staff yelling at customers through bullhorns (as is their wont) and shooting back glasses of whiskey. Regulars used the stained pool table as a makeshift seat while a security guy noshed on slices of pizza from a pie resting on stacks of bottled beer in boxes. In other words, business as usual.



Everything will have to be dismantled and removed after Sunday, including the bar's 18,000 bras, the taxidermy, construction helmets, and every other item that's tacked to the wall and coated in an inch of thick dust. Dust that threatens to float down from above and land in your $7 can of Coors Light. Were the beers always that expensive? Going out of business "sale"?

Salute the old gal one last time on Sunday—and bring cash (and a face mask!).
