Two weeks ago, we made the sad discovery on a sweltering Monday that Moon Time, Westword's regular watering hole at 846 Broadway, was closed -- reportedly for HVAC work. And the job must not be going too well, because a sign still on the door today notes that Moon Time will be closed Saturday, August 2, for another HVAC project.
More telling is a second note posted to the side of the door, announcing that Moon Time has "temporary limited hours," and is now only open from 4 p.m. - 2 a.m. Wednesday-Saturday. We'll be waiting with bated breath for the appointed hour Wednesday, to see if we can grab a seat at Moon Time's bar -- or once again must wander the neighborhood in search of a replacement for the Westword rumpus room.
