Looks like any last hope for a resurrection of MLK's Alu Wine Bar — which shuttered quietly last October — has been dashed, but a silver lining of sorts for those who dug the cozy spot's decor: On the Craigslist, owner Susan Killoran is advertising a complete "closing down sale," selling all the restaurant's kitchen equipment, swanky furniture, chandeliers, cutlery — and the contents of its wine cellar and spirits cabinet.
Reads the post: "It was a sad day when we closed Alu, but the economy, location and an expensive concept made it impossible to continue. Thus we are selling our furnishings, equipment, wine & spirits this week. Stop by to check out our items for sale, taste some wine, and purchase wines and spirits by the bottle." Sale starts on Thursday at 3pm; a virtual garage sale album can be found here.
