UPDATE (Monday, 5:45 p.m.) Cade Michals is a spokesman for Rich's Sacred Ground, not a partner.
No doubt this is not the way Rich's wanted to celebrate its 30th anniversary this year. The most recent tenants of the long-running and equally star-crossed Midtown dance club closed their doors Friday with no reason given but a promise to return, according to a post on the club's Facebook page.
"We regret to inform you that Rich's has closed its doors," the message said. "Thank you for all the years of support and stay tuned for future announcements regarding shows, promotions, etc! Thank you Houston!"
A further note by Rich's in the comments section said, "We will be announcing new plans soon! Thanks for all the love and support!"
