LeNell's is closing, next Friday.

Unread postby cowdery » Fri Feb 13, 2009 5:46 pm

LeNell's is a small, idiosyncratic (and bourbon-friendly) liquor store in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn. The proprietor, Tonya LeNell Smothers, used to be an active participant on this site and still has many friends here.

She is closing at her present location next Friday, 2/20, and does not have a new spot. She is actively looking for one and promises to reopen, but she can't predict when that will be.

There is more on my blog, here.

And on her web site, here.

Oh, and she also raises chickens, in Brooklyn, so says The New York Times.

I have been to her store a couple of times. I loved the experience (and the great collection of bourbons and ryes). I will miss the place. I wish LeNell the very best and hope to see her, once again, have her own store down the road.
