Looks like the rumors were true: The Falls Bar is no more. We walked by last night, and the neon sign was gone. A small group of protesters stood outside, but the bar was empty. Looks like the Imette St. Guillen case finally caught up with the Dorian family. Hard to feel all that upset. [Related: WCBS is reporting that the State Liquor Authority is revoking the Falls' license-- although that might be a foregone move at this point.]

UPDATE: Curt Gathje from Zagat wrote in: "FYI, just spoke with The Falls on the phone and they are still open." So it looks like rumors of their untimely demise were a bit premature.
