Is nothing sacred? I've been going to Cedar's for just about 20 years. It's been a staple for the sort of underground college scene for longer than that i imagine; for the musicians and artists that manange to hang on in a town that's fallen apart, Cedar's is THE coolest place anywhere close. For the 'in' crowd there; that place means something to us. It's the complete opposite of your typical crappy, dime a dozen sports bar. I can't tell you how many truly good bands i've seen there and many good nights i've had there. This is truly a shame. Yeah, it may reopen somewhere else, i don't know, but it'll never be the same. This place is one of the very few bright spots in Youngstown, Truly a shame that the new owner doesn't have the vision to understand this.
