Reader Bskills4 sent this observation in yesterday. Did anyone else notice the same thing?

Hey, in case any of your readers are interested.. East La got rid of their happy hour and the place is dark!!

2/20/2007:

So word on the street is confidently indicating that East LA is being sold. Apparently the business wasn’t doing so well, and it was time to jump ship. Some readers are speculating that the shorter-than-usual bar hours might have had something to do with it.

New owners are reported to be The Farside.

No word at this time whether the venue, name or menu will change. No firm date as to when the business will change hands.

I just realized 411 never reviewed this place! Should I be happy?
