Cubby Bear North in Lincolnshire has kicked off the new year by closing its doors. 

Its marquee, which typically promotes upcoming band performances, simply reads “Closed.” Its doors display messages declaring, “Closed. Happy New Year.”

The longtime restaurant and band venue on Milwaukee Avenue hosted a New Year’s Eve bash. A promotion of that event was the last Tweet sent out by the business. Its Facebook page has been deactivated.

No one answered the phone Friday afternoon at the Lincolnshire location, where the number remains in service. An employee reached at Cubby Bear’s Chicago location said the Lincolnshire restaurant closed Dec. 31 and “as far as I know” it is not reopening.

She directed further inquiries to Cubby Bear’s real estate management company, which could not immediately provide information.

Maybe the Lake Forest Millionaire can come to the rescue. Anyone know when his bakery opens? I was assured Feb 2013 and it seems to be running a little behind.
