Although hope of saving it still clings to life -- just barely -- SoMa's Eagle Tavern closed over the weekend. "It marks the end of a month that saw a flurry of nostalgic Eagle pieces and a concerted effort from the community to try to keep it open," reports Inside Scoop's Paolo Lucchesi. "Alas, though there’s a possibility of rebirth down the line, SoMa’s 30-year-old gay bar is now closed." Through all the media attention, outcries from the leather community, help from the Board of Supervisors, and even rumors about the closure being "an inside job," the Eagle is closed. For now. (In the meantime, we highly recommend Lone Star's Sunday beer bust, if the mood should strike.) [SFGate, Ex]
