[Photo: Guest of a Guest]With punk rock establishment St. Jerome’s dead in the water, its loyal disciples are giving it a proper send-off … at Lit Lounge. The “Fare Thee Well” party is tonight at 9pm, providing those in mourning a “chance for a raucous goodbye” and to “get lost in the fog, emerge to find old friends from old haunts.”

Christopher Miller of Miller’s Near & Far is reportedly the new game at 155 Rivington Street. The new endeavor is a bar-restaurant that offers, among other things, “small plate sausage, cheese, and dried fruit.”

Party details below:

Finally a chance for a raucous goodbye to the bar that closed silently last month.

Get lost in fog in the LIT basement, emerge to find old friends from old haunts with performances by:
