Are Dive Bars Allowed to Change?

EV Grieve informs us that one of our favorite dives, Lucys, is taking a vacation till September 10. While were on the subject, is anyone else bummed that the bars picture-perfect façade has been marred by an ATM? (Lucy told us she installed the thing for customers a couple months ago, since her bar is cash only). Yes, its a petty gripe, but as weve pointed out before, this is one of our favorite New York City storefronts, and its rare to see the slightest change at Lucys, much less a money monster jammed in the window. But if it makes it easier to enjoy the two-for-one happy hour, then what the hell.
