Chicky's Fine Diner,
the outpost of local-music and diner culture in a historic space in Westbrook,
closed Saturday for good.
The diner, which celebrated its third anniversary at the end of last month, closed for financial problems, according to co-owner Blake Smithson, who said the club faced the costs of
renewing all of its various food, beverage, and entertainment licenses, as well
as some overdue tax payments, and "the specter of June, July, and
August" - the lowest-revenue three-month period of the year.
