On Monday morning, The Shutter brought news that Luisa's—flagship of the notorious Ms. Luisa Hanson—closed suddenly last Friday night. On-site investigations revealed that the folks down on Union Street chalked up the blame to "planned renovations."
Well, the Department of Public Health updates its inspection reports on a weekly basis, and we now have confirmation that the closure at Luisa's stems from a failed health inspection last Friday.
