Freddy's Bar & Backroom in Prospect Heights is one of many businesses and residences facing the wrecking ball to make room for developer Bruce Ratner's controversial Atlantic Yards project in Brooklyn. Last week staffers and tipplers handcuffed themselves to the bar to protest the establishment's increasingly likely demise, and this weekend they kicked it up a notch by building a nine-foot-tall guillotine made from PBR cans and executing an effigy representing "eminent domain theft." (One yank on a Blue Point beer tap brought the blade down.)

According to Atlantic Yards Report, bar manager Donald O'Finn read from a scroll, "declaring a revolt against eminent domain law and criticizing the role of ACORN, the British bank Barclays, which bought the arena naming rights that the state gave away, and Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov, slated to become majority owner of the Nets." Before executing the prisoner, O'Finn told the assembled crowd of bloodthirsty and beer-thirsty mourners, "It's just like a foreclosure, except they're foreclosing on a neighborhood, and we're not even behind on the mortgage."
