Largo to Close? What's Happening to Fairfax Village?
First Nova Express Cafe? Now Largo? The good news, however, is that Largo's alleged closing is about opening a new space on La Cienaga according to bulletin board threads on www.fairfax-avenue.com and the Ditty Bops' website.
A February 21st post on Fairfax Avenue repeated what Sara Watkins (of the Watkins Family Hour) wrote on a MySpace bulletin: "Largo will be closed and moving to a great new location during May (to open in June) so hurry down if you want to see the original venue." Discussion ensued and apparently Largo will be moving to Coronet Theatre, which is about a mile away on La Cienaga. One commenter was skeptical about the loss Largo's intimacy, yet came to a compromise -- "but also no waiting on the street anymore.'
No one at Largo could be reached to confirm Watkins' statement and the calendar on their website is booked through March.
