Cannon's Pub

, a bar where many a Morning Sides resident laughed at , where it smells like urine of today as well as twenty years, is closing this Thursday. When Gothamist visits the old neighborhood up by Columbia, we think about how we barely recognize it. Of course we're sad, because it's been a stand-by for the past and we wish it would stay there forever, but it's also part of the evolution, for better or worse, of the neighborhood. Gothamist foresees madness on Thursday night when Cannon's closes its doors.

More at Verbose Coma. And Gothamist on the closing of another Columbia-area institution, Columbia Bagels.
