A blog by Creative Loafing claims rumors are flying that the Atlanta Eagle is expected to close by the end of the year, but that is not true at this time, says Richard Ramey, co-owner of the gay bar on Ponce de Leon Avenue.
The blog post by Cliff Bostock was titled "News that sucks" and talks about the Eagle laying off bartender Chris Lopez.
“I'm sorry to report that one of the city's best bartenders, Chris Lopez, was laid off recently by the Atlanta Eagle after seven years. It's not altogether surprising. Rumors have been flying that the bar will close before the end of the year," writes Bostock.
