The rumors flow in almost weekly: St. Nick's Social Club on S. Swan is closed, is closing or will close.
The latest rumor had St. Nick's with doors shuttered as of June 1.
I stopped by St. Nick's yesterday and today: Still open.
"We have no intention of closing," said Mike Rimmer, president of the board of directors. "Things have been tough financially, but we're still here."
He added, "Things are tough for a lot of clubs and restaurants. We're all hurting in this economy, and of course, people like to start rumors."
If St. Nick's were to close, the announcement would be made publicly at a monthly membership meeting.
I have been going to Lions
I have been going to Lions Club meetings at St. Nick's for years and they do a fantastic job.
This is a great place that we need to keep alive.
