By the early 1970s, Cedar Avenue was undergoing some drastic changes. Cedar Riverside Plaza, an apartment complex designed by Ralph Rapson, opened in 1973. And the University of Minnesota was expanding to the West Bank. Caesar's Bar was well-known and liked. The Lees rented apartments above Caesar's to students and also maintained a garden at 3rd St. and Cedar Ave. David Lee became ill and the couple closed the bar on March 28, 1986. The buildings were sold several months later.
David died of cancer in March, 1990. Muriel Lee no longer lives in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood. She is a local author and editor and is actively involved with pet boarding and the Minneapolis Kennel Club.
