From what we understand, the lease on the space is concluding, and owner Mike Little simply decided to throw in the towel and move on. There had been some rumors circulating the neighborhood of late, yet nothing substantial until now.
However, word on the street is that Little might be considering other options in the neighborhood. Our requests for comment have gone unanswered.
Lost Weekend opened in August 2011, and quickly became a de-facto surf shop and caffeine dispensary with gear and boards in the windows. The establishment was usually full of local regulars. Recently, though, business had reportedly been hurting of late.
