No Memorial Day fun on the roof deck at The Corner.

Saturday, May 24 will be the finale after 3½ years of the bar-restaurant at 13th and Drury Streets in Washington Square West.

Owner Tony Rim will use the early part of next week, including Memorial Day, to renovate.

It is expected to reopen Friday, May 30 as Mamou, with food themed to south-central Louisiana.
