SILVER LAKE: Alarm bells were ringing over at LAist today: The Red Lion Tavern was suddenly shuttered:
What's in the holy hell is going on at The Red Lion!? There is a black on white sign hanging on the door that reads "Closed Until Further Notice." The atrocity was discovered last night around 9pm by intrepid man-on-the-street and resident Silverlakian, "J," who prefers to remain anonymous during this trying time.Luckily, the writer made a quick phone call to find out that the tavern was just closed for "upgrades and renovations," which reeks of DOH to us. If someone wants to get their restaurant/bar up to code, would they do it on a Friday night? For those lovers of all things sausage and beer, rejoice: the Red Lion should reopen by 5pm tomorrow.
Here's what we know: The lights are off. The gates are closed. The phone just rings and rings. And "J's" intern did not show up to work today. (This may not be related).
