At the end of the day on Friday, the Village Voice reported that Freddy’s Bar & Back Room, which has served as the official watering hole of the anti-Atlantic Yards movement, had received an official eviction notice to vacate the premises within 30 days. A regular, however, clarified the situation in the comments section: “Freddy’s got something that was meant to look like an eviction notice. But it was just a trick by the developer. An actual eviction notice is a legal document (last night’s letter was not) from the court (this was from Ratner’s lawyers) and served by a process server (last night’s letter came by courier.)” When the bar eventually does have to close, as seems inevitable at this point, manager Donald O’Finn hopes to reopen elsewhere.
