    New Bar - Sgt. Pepper's

    Old bar, new changes - FYI

    I am personally really excited about this bar being such a big fan of classic rock. If it is anything like Capone's, then it will be good.

    Does anyone know when Papa Lou's is gonna open? The owners of Peoples have to be ****** off at that whole situation.

    Re: New Bar - Sgt. Pepper's

    Anyone else find this part funny?

    the former location of Campustown fixture Phuel Bar.
    Doesn't something have to be around for say, five years to be a 'fixture'? Welch Ave Station is a fixture, Cy's is a fixture, Phuel...not so much...

    Why would the owner be mad at this situation?

    Because Peoples lost their spot on the corner of Lincoln and Welch ave for a bar that has yet to sell a drink. Papa Lou's has been in construction for at least 6 months now.

    As the owner of the building, they have the right to renew or not renew a lease.
    If you've ever worked for Tom Z. or dealt with him in a business sense, you'd realize the guy has some great business characteristics, however, he does many things that are not so great.
    I like Tom, but I don't miss doing business with the guy.

    Thats fine, its your business decision. I would just really like to know what's going on with Papa Lou's though. It was supposed to open sometime in October, and then January 1st. My question is, will it ever open?

    I agree, it seems like it's taking forever to get it open.

    What is Estas?

    Is this somewhere between Paddy's and old Peoples on the same side of the street?

    What is Dean's List called these days????

    Re: New Bar - Sgt. Pepper's

    They've had signs up for a few weeks advertising that they are hiring for all positions (including management). To me, that means that they've finally gotten somewhere (as opposed to the 'nowhere' they were stuck at for a long time) but they're still not nearly as far along as they need to be. The construction definitely isn't finished yet, either. Perhaps this is a good CyBookie event for you gambling addicts? I'm not putting any credits on the line after the Drake @ Iowa attendance fiasco, but my bet is that Papa Lou's doesn't open until late March.

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    It was originally going to open in July/beginning of August. However, they decided to drive heavy machinery inside the building, causing all kinds of structural, and floor damage, as well as breaking building codes. So, before they could open, they had to fix all of that, hence the wait.

    Re: New Bar - Sgt. Pepper's

    There has been talk of Phuel going away for some time. A couple of years ago they were having some trouble with serving minors. I liked the bar, but it was time for a change, I think alot of shady business took place in the establishment.
