Attention, drink-slingers and the degenerates who love them: it looks like The Johnsons, the Bushwick offspring of Lower East Side staple Welcome to the Johnsons, is approaching go time. A tipster spotted this call for bartenders at 369 Troutman Street, between Irving and Wyckoff Aves. The State Liquor Authority’s website says the license is still pending — we’ll let you know if we hear more.

Meanwhile another LES staple, Max Fish, finally has a closing date. Gallerist reported yesterday that it’s shuttering August 1, and the site seems to be psyched about the Fish’s forthcoming Williamsburg location: “So, Brooklyn! The Lower East Side can suck it!”
