A reader sent us an update, complete with photo, on Lime, the yet-to-open bar on Flatbush between Hawthorne and Winthrop.
It looks like the place is coming together. We have not heard about any proposed grand opening date - we assume that the owner is still awaiting a liquior license.
We're curious to see what the crowd is like at Lime. The owner, Lou, told us that he plans to promote the bar through Trinidadian family members; therefore, the crowd will probably end up being predominantly Carribbean.
However, there are tons of young, non-Carribbean folks (black, white, whathaveyou) in the neighborhood looking for hangouts other than K-Dog (no booze) and Enduro (not really a bar, e.g, no standing room).
There's nothing wrong with having another Carribbean hangout in the nabe. In our opinion, however, it would be great if Lime ended up attracting a mixed crowd.
