Hey there, readers. I don’t know about you, but I finally relented and turned on my air conditioner. Here’s to the next six months of summer!
First up, let’s talk business closures. Henrys Jack’s Place closed earlier this year at 613 E. Western Ave. in Avondale.
Admittedly, we missed covering it in the Briefcase the first time around, but more to the point, I received a call from one of the owners shedding some light on why it shut its doors.
For those of you who read Briefcase regularly, this is a fairly rare (yet very welcomed) occurrence. Most of the time, businesses shutter without warning or explanation, so it’s nice to get some “closure.”
Henrys Jack’s Place was a bar originally built in 1935 by ... you guessed it, Jack. More than 40 years later, it was bought by Henry Beltran, who added his name onto the title and kept it going.
