Ruby's last day...?

As of today, Ruby's Bar and Grill is still in negotiations for a new lease, so we don't know if they'll be back next season or if this last Sunday was really, truly, the last day.  Assuming it was, I went out to the boardwalk to bid farewell and to soak up everything I want to remember.

After a freak October snowstorm the previous day, Sunday was clear and sunny - perfect for sitting outside.

Inside, patrons watched some football...

While out front, a mysterious sea creature made an appearance...

What ever it is, I love it.

Meanwhile, the famous photographs came down from the walls...

And some parts of the room were already stripped bare.

Here's to a true Brooklyn/New York/American treasure.

  1. Great shots, Goggla, especially of the mystery man and the sea animal. I'd love to know his story! Here's hoping there's another season here next year.

  2. Ha! The beast! I'm starting to wish I had one to carry around. It was a sweet-sad, beautiful autumn afternoon. Hope we can be back next year.

  3. We've GOT to find out more about that sea-rabbit. Maybe it's got a nest somewhere...
