Pete's Place will be open during construction! It may look like the back door is out of commission, but it's not! Even if there's a big backhoe parked in front of it, use the front door. Come on. Figure it out.
Okay, on to the update!!! Should/Could be done by next friday, May 2nd. Keep your fingers crossed. Last time I left you, it looked like this:
I was out of town checking in on the progress for Pete's Place Rum, out of the Caribbean, coming soon to a bar near you… Okay, but really, I got to walk the plank for the first time and here it is POV style:
What do you think? Super impressive, no? No. Okay on to more pics!! Footings have been poured, new slab and the and columns ought to be up soon. Expansive dirt? WTF!? Oh yeah, Pete's been doing concrete for over 30 years. He knows what he's doing.
In other news. Check this sign out!! I absolutely love this sign. So cool. So retro. So old school. It's the original Pete's Place sign that was hung up on the La Mesa Blvd side of the bar. As you can see it's in pretty bad shape after maybe 40 years? More to follow after these pics.
It's getting a little bit of an update by Hoss Jejjoni (below) over at Jejjoni Sign Manufacturing. He's gonna dip it in his lazarus pit and bring it back to life for us, or whatever type of sorcery he's about to do to it. I can not wait.
Keep checking back.
