Inner City Blues to Close

Gilpin Court will lose soul food hot spot.

Gilpin Court’s Inner City Blues will close Sunday, Dec. 1 because of a dispute with the landlord. Fear not -- Alicia and Lamont Hawkins’ excellent North Carolina-style barbecue is available at the couple’s second location, Carolina Bar B Que Restaurant, on Nine Mile Road.
