We’ll be honest: After last month’s “he-said-she-said” drama surrounding the apparent closure of Frank’s Power Plant, just hearing the words “Frank’s Power Plant” makes us dizzy. So we’ll keep this short and sweet:

Frank’s Power Plant is closed. For real this time. For now.

Urban Milwaukee has the story, which says that owner Frank Wickert is “taking a break from running the establishment.” The bar is still up for sale, though Urban Milwaukee says Wickert “may reopen if it does not sell in a timely manner.” Jesus.

“Frank’s Power Plant is in a holding pattern right now,” Wickert says. “Stay tuned for the open sign to come on.”
