Last Friday, the NYPD closed down LES bar Max Fish for allegedly serving underage drinkers and it has yet to reopen. Owner Ulli Rimkus is reportedly in talks with the city to make amends and over 1600 people have signed an online petition, demanding that the venerable “institution” be allowed to operate. “Its disappearance would be the death knell for all things good, original, creative and vibrant in the neighborhood,” pleaded one supporter.
