T's Restaurant and Bar, a longtime favorite of the North Side LGBT community, was shut down by the Cook County Sheriff yesterday. The Windy City Times reported in October that owner Colm Treacy was facing his third audit in five years and over $100,000 in fines after participating in a wire-tapped FBI sting with an auditor over a 2007 bribe. The restaurant is now completely shuttered and covered with eviction notices.
Treacy also co-owns Andersonville and Rogers Park LGBT establishments The Glenwood, Sidecar and Morsel, which opened in November. Sources say he's been in a dispute with a partner, Renee Labrana. There's no word of what will happen to his other ventures, but he confirmed T's is done in a Facebook message.
