Once more, with feeling

The storied Music Menu in Greektown has gotten something of a reprieve. It originally was scheduled to change hands last weekend, but the buyers have asked the sellers to keep the nightclub and music venue operating as it is for a while longer.

“We’re just going to stay open during the process of the liquor-license transfer,” says Rick Pinkerton, one of the partners in the club. “They’ve asked for an additional 60 days, but we could close sooner than that. It may not be 60 days. Any day could be our last.”

After more than 10 years in operation, the Menu had its “Last Dance” performance, featuring blues diva Thornetta Davis, last Saturday. But that gig was scheduled before the buyers asked that the exchange be put off.

“We’ve got a great lineup of musicians for February,” Pinkerton says. “We’ll keep doing what we do.”
