Walking past the Chameleon Bar this morning, I saw two stickers across its door that said "Clausurado"--"Closed Down" according to Google Translate, with yesterday's date and Muncipal Government of Chapala's imprimatur. What's the story? Is there one?

Never been inside, but what makes it "counter culture"? Bartender in ponytail? Beer

The Camaleon, after only a couple drinks, seems to be a mash up of the Star Wars bar, the bar from From Dusk to Dawn, and something from a Tijuana bar in the 60's. What's fun is talking to the characters from the movies and that's easy if ya know what to drink, wink wink.

I think I will just agree with Oncesubtle description as that works for me.  It just is. I can't tell you why.

The owner (Fito) is actually on vacation in Cancun. Something must have happened since he left. Probably an unpaid "fee" or smoking violation. Maybe he was late in paying his state taxes.

So, is this the "harassing" Intercasa was referring to?

Sometimes, one person's idea of harassment can be another's idea of negligence.
You wouldn't think that would happen in the legal community.

I got to see a Chapala license guy harrass a local business when they had all the correct paperwork. I gave him the dirties look I could and started writing things down in a book and he got quiet quickly and left. He never showed up again. Extreme bullies is all I can say and when bullies are called for the behavior they run.

Zed, are you saying you know the bar being closed is the result of the Chapala license guy's harassment?

No I did not. FYI I believe the bar opened up again today.
