The abrupt closings of The Box and La Esquina's downstairs took everyone by surprise. But hey, these things happen. And last week, we told you that the Box reopened, which is good for someone. Still, there has been little news on La Esquina, the place to see and be seen if you can get in. Well, a Little Birdy just told us, "they are still saying they are closed due to a water main problem. You can't even make a reservation for next month. But the women who I spoke with said they should know on Monday when they can reopen and if they can start booking tables." Sounds serial. Super serial. Even though we love it down there, it has to be some kind of crazy fire hazard if something were to go wrong. Crazier things have happened. We are guessing it may be a bit longer before they reopen.
