Boy, if the walls at that place could talk...
...they'd be screaming and writhing on the floor, covered in horse tranquilizer dust, dressed like a disco Lizzie Borden.
In my days and nights in the fields of Wisconsin, roughly a decade ago, I'd only come to know it as a horse tranquilizer. Or, more accurately, "that horse tranquilizer shit that'll make you sit around for a buncha hours in the D&B tent, drooling."
Next you're going to tell me that phat pants were not in fact phat, right? Sigh. Rave really IS dead.
I'll forgo further light commentary now, for fear of correction. My attempt at a bit of self-deprecating cameraderie clearly failed. As such, I shall slink away to wallow in further misconceptions and half-truths.
That doesn't sound like it may "never open", unless that was just a sarcastic exaggeration...
They showed this place on some morning news show a little while ago and it looked pretty close to done to me. I think it's hard for people who have never opened a store before to judge how far along a place really is. When I opened my store, it was nothing but bare white walls until literally the week before opening, and we didn't have the fixtures in until the night before. From what I've heard talking to other people, that's pretty common. The stuff you actually see is really the easiest and quickest stuff to put in, so you leave it until the last minute. It's all the stuff you can't see (like electrical or plumbing work) that takes forever.
@badasscat: I'm having my kitchen redone, and boy is that the truth. It took him 1 day to pull out the cabinets and fixtures and nearly a week replace and run new wiring, put up new plaster board and the bottom row of cabinets. There's still another 2 weeks to go until tiles are up and counters are in. After those things are done, I get to work painting the walls. Only after the paint is dry, will I be able to move back in.
I can't wait to buy my Drano and duct tape at the Michael Alig supply shop!
Somehow a lame "upscale" mall seems a greater desecration of the old church than whacked-out kids dry-humping in the bathroom. I didn't realize until I wrote that how true that is.
