We just received word that Polovina Italian Cafe has been locked out by its landlord, allegedly for non-payment of rent.
A sign on the door posted on the door says new keys will be issued once payment is made to the company handling the rent.
In September, Joanna O'Leary wrote about Polovina for us, saying that it appeared it was trying to reach several different and perhaps conflicting audiences at once.
We'll update once we hear more news.
