Uptown rides again

Hey — the Uptown is back in business again. Last time I went by in November, the Everyone Else Is Doing itOaksterdam night club over by the Fox Theatre on Telegraph was still dark and the new owners were about to go to the city for a cabaret license. They got it. Paul Van Kleef over at Cafe Van Kleef told me the other night that the new owners were a different breed than the old ones, who got out of Dodge when the Uptown went south. (BTW, I found this very cool shot of the Fox on Gwen Harlow’s Flickr site. So the credit goes to her, whoever she is.)
