UPDATE: Michelle Fire's gay-friendly bar, Big Chicks, has gotten a brief stay by the city and will remain in business until at least January 13, 2004, when their next hearing will take place. There is a state law forbidding liquor sales within 100 feet of a religious institution, and Agudas Achim Synagogue is nearby. (There has been a liquor license at Big Chicks location since 1944.) You can still sign the petition to support Big Chicks.
