Sunny's Bar Plans to Reopen in June
As Gothamist noted yesterday, tickets are now on sale for Sunny's May Day Party, a benefit at the Bell House which will kick off a month of organized fundraising for the wonderful old Red Hook bar that was flooded by Hurricane Sandy and has yet to reopen.

Sunny's earlier fundraising efforts paid for a new boiler, gas line, compressor, and other repairs, but the basement still needs some serious work. According to an announcement from the Sunny's crew on their website, if this round of fundraising goes as planned and the basement repairs are made on time, the bar will reopen its doors by the end of June.
