First Avenue closes ?? for good?


The legendary First Avenue nightclub, 701 1st Ave. N., has closed its doors indefinitely in the wake of a bankruptcy filing by founder Allan Fingerhut.

A small, barely noticeable sign posted on the club's door at the corner of 1st Avenue North & 7th Street announced the closing Nov. 2. Another farewell posted on the club's Web site offered thanks to the club's staff and community: "The departing staff wish to thank all of the staff members from the last 30-plus years for their hard work, tears and souls."
