The decline of newspapers can really be traced back to two things: 1) the advent of nimbler, handsomer online email newsletter publications, and 2) their refusal to put cocktail bars in their basements. Finally addressing the latter, Local Edition, the newest member of the Rickhouse/Bourbon & Branch/Mr. Win Win's Broman Empire, opening tonight in the basement of the Hearst Building.
Setting up on the actual printing room floor of the Examiner, LE's interior is steeped in newspaper history (old-fashioned typewriters, printing presses, vintage newspapers, and the building's original giant clock) all laid out in one massive drinking room. They'll feature accessibly delicious cocktails, which you could read endless, hilariously-joked-upon descriptions of, or just click through to an illustrated guide of a night out at LE (with commentary from a fictitious, monocled, 19th-century newspaper baron, duh), assembled entirely by one of those nimbler, handsomer online email newsletter publications you've been reading so much about.
