Patrons showed up to Skid Row's King Eddy Saloon this weekend to enjoy the last of a bar that was once a favorite of writers Charles Bukowski and John Fante. The bar is shutting down today before it is revamped and reopened under new ownership. LAist was there last night to snap some photos of patrons toasting the bar.
