Owner Zina Murray is not letting LSK go quietly. The closure is a result of years of fighting with the city, multiple inspections and navigating countless regulations. She released a statement on her blog, concluding by writing,"It should come as no surprise that we must close. LSK is collateral damage from choices that city employees make each day - people that have lost the ability to connect their actions with the consequences they cause. In all the many, many meetings I’ve had in City Hall in the past three years, there’s a question no one ever asks. 'Is it good for our city?'"
Today, a response from the Chicago Department of Business Affairs said they regret Murray's decision to close LSK, but left little to suggest legislation that caused the closer will change.
