That sounds pretty cool! It could be worse Dave, it could be a Krispy Kreme :P

KK is horrible, however, Urban Beanery does sell baked goods which are most likely about as bad for you as KK. Oh well, at least it is not on the beltline.

We're shooting for the 10th, possibly the 17th if construction gets tied up :whistling: . And it is looking sweet in there BTW.

I've walked past there a couple of times when the door has been open, and thought about asking if I could check it out while it is under construction.

I drove past there last night, and it looks like you can see past some of the paper in the windows. The guy running contruction may not like visitors, but they're doing applications so people always are "wandering in". :whistling:

I believe they plan to tear down the areas to the far right in the photo.

I think it's time for me to go home and pop open a Smithwicks. Thanks dude! :rofl:

This should be probably posted under favorite beer but thanks Veronica, I have some Smtihwicks in the fridge but it tastes so much better on tap. Besides, Fenian's Irish Pub, where else in GR metro do they serve Smithwicks on tap?

I think the Black Rose might have it. I'm almost sure I've ordered it there before.

Flanigans has it.. They have cheap drafts on Friday nights, check it out!
