The Hippo no more

The Hippo nightclub, for more than four decades an anchor and gathering place for Baltimore’s gay community, closed Oct. 3. A CVS drugstore is planned for the location. Hardly seems like a fair trade, “I have a million memories,” said Rik Newton-Treadway, a veteran producer of events hosted at the Hippo, “and not one of them is bad.”
