The Final Night at Max Fish on Ludlow [PHOTOS]
The last month has been especially difficult to process, losing both Motor City Bar and Max Fish.
We hate goodbyes. And leaving the decades-old Max Fish at 178 Ludlow was truly difficult, especially after pounding a half-dozen vodka sodas and suds. Either way, it was a send-off for the ages. Old timers and newcomers alike partied in a packed house; some even tried to shoot pool amidst the crowding. It was a total sweaty mess akin to a mosh pit, but the vibes were positive … despite the elephant in the room.
The popular skater bar is now just another vacant real estate opportunity for some carpetbagger gambling on the hotel next door. Our morning-after stupor won’t make us vomit, but this closure certainly does.
Our ears are still ringing this morning, and to be honest, we have nothing left to say. Here are some photos from the last night of Max Fish. Long live the Fish.
And some video for posterity:
