Ding Dong Done? (updated)

Ding Dong Lounge, the dive bar on Columbus, appears to have ceased operations sometime during winter break.  Worried friends and loved ones had mentioned in passing that the bar seemed to have new, reduced hours, but an endlessly ringing phone and those shuttered doors suggest a far grimmer fate.  We salute you, Ding Dong: you were a constant presence in our weekends.  How many times did we text a friend late on a Friday and receive, “Oh, I’m going to Ding Dong. You should totally come!” only to respond, “Umm, yeah, really wanted to hang out but I’m feeling kinda tired and it’s on Columbus, so maybe coffee tomorrow?”  Goodbye, friend.

Update, 11:23 PM: Nostra culpa.  The Ding Dong Lounge is still open for business, but has been maintaining odd hours and has not answering the phone.  However, Bwog finally got in touch with the establishment just a few minutes ago but they could not hear our pleas for more information over the din of the patrons within.

    @... I was there on Saturday night having a beer. Learn to research/fact check and maybe at least act like you give a fuck.

      @Oooh boy No need to get that upset. The Bwogger said they tried to contact Ding Dong, and as a patron of the Dong, I too thought it had closed; they got a definitive answer, which I had been unable to. I for one applaud you, Bwog, for brightening my Tuesday night.

    What should Bwog's new tagline be?
