When I left Chicago this morning it was 5°F. About three hours later I was standing in 73°F temperatures on sunny Pleasure Island! There's not a lot new on the island but since all of you feast on this stuff, this Blog reports even on the mundane. For instance, we previously reported on some new boards installed on the Waterfront Stage. Now nearly all of the boards have been replaced. We previously reported on the unique black paint on the new Mannequins side stairs. That has now been painted over with the standard issue rusty brown found on all the other railings around the island. Like I said, mundane. Just remember that you heard it here first! You can't get stuff like this from the Sentinel.
Sources continue to say that the Adventurers Club snack & beverage Cart is going to be enlarged and moved downhill....but my sources don't know when or where to. No further progress on the demolition of the old towers holding the Harley Davidson Store signs. They're going to remain until, sources say, the Harley store moves to the West Side where Mickey's Groove is currently located. Other source-based information: The Mannequins dance floor is supposedly still in the club. Also, the reason the RRBC facade was freshly painted where the sign used to hang was because Tom Staggs who took over for Jay Rusulo was to tour the island and they didn't want him to see the paint scrapes and gouges that had been left behind. OK, that's all for today!
