From a site on Google:

On June 11,1966 there was a major fire and Mayers closed for a number of years. Following the fire Billy Mayer ran The Stuffed Shirt Bar and we would talk about reopening the club. My father went on to work on Broadway in musicals, the Opera, movies (The Night they Raided Minskie's) and then he relocated to Florida. I joined the Navy and ended up in the Fleet Marines. My brother, his wife Johanna and three children moved to California in 1969 and I folllowed in the fall of that year.
Mayers reopened in 1971 and closed in 1980.
