As of 4am this morning, The Lakeside Lounge is history. But last night was The Last Call at The Lakeside Lounge and everyone who was there joined to close the place down with grit, humor, camaraderie and straight ahead, no frills, no foolin’ rock ‘n’ roll.
Update: Read Nate Schweber’s article in the New York Times Blog about the last night at The Lakeside here.
Here are some pictures.

Tonight, 16 years after it first opened, is the last call at The Lakeside Lounge. The music will start at 9pm and be provided by Eric Ambel (one of the Lakeside’s owners), with able assistance from Phil Cimino, Alison Jones and Chip Robinson. My bet is that the place will be crowded, so get there early. If you’ve been to the Lakeside before, I have no doubt that you’ll want to be there tonight to say goodbye.
Update: There will be special guests joining Eric tonight and they include Mary Lee Kortes, Andy York, Mark Spencer, Jimbo Mathus and more.
