Peter S. Scholtes has the inside scoop on First Avenue's closing, including an exclusive interview with Allan Fingerhut at Complicated Fun:

"We were told to run to the bank," said marketing assistant Mean Larry on Tuesday, when he called to tell me the news. "There are some paychecks here for people that aren't going to be paid. We didn't get paid for Halloween. Isn't that funny. One of the three longest days of the year for all of our staff, and the only payment they got was a couple cases of Bud at the end of the night."
