Anchor Petition To End Tomorrow.

The Anchor, a classic visual of downtown New Haven

It might be too late for The Anchor, but the author of a petition against its closing is hoping to use this as a launch point to organize around preserving the local character he feels places like it represented. Meanwhile, patrons of the restaurant/bar are still fundraising for the laid off employees. More in our updated coverage of the story.

Some may think that the organizer, 'Stina Del Santo, intends on keeping the funding to go to Atlantic City. The Local Music Scene had some fun with this, in what became a paradoxical and confusingly misleading article.

The New Haven Zoning Authority also recently had some fun, contemplating other changes around the landscape. There is, in fact, a very good chance though that the Anchor will stay put.

You can Donate directly to the displaced workers.
