At 2 x 4: Another bar, another awning?

The Evolution is not dead after all!

According to the door, the bar is being renovated...

As a commenter noted last time:

My roommate and I have been going to 2 by 4 for years now, so when I saw that it shut down, we had to find out what was up. We swung by there last night and saw Eric and Heather inside, so my roommate banged on the door and they opened up. The whole place was gutted and they're doing massive renovations, but they're reopening in mid-July.

It won't be 2 by 4 anymore, but the ownership is staying the same.

Hmm, perhaps the owners needs some suggestions on a theme for the new bar? I'm sure all of you have some good ideas to share. I've always wanted to open a Patrick Swayze Theme Bar — The Swayyyyyyyyyze. Made in his likeness. With drinks like "Next of Kin" and "Red Dawn." But it seems insensitive given his health.

how many more bar names will this place go through?

OOOhhhh I love the Swayze angle Grieve. I say they name it "Roadhouse". Then it's more of a tribute than a theme bar. But you could still have all of the elements that made that movie the masterpiece that it is AWESOME bar!

Hmmm, yes! Or we can call it the Double Deuce.... Who will be our villain, our Brad Wesley?

Not that I've ever seen the movie.

I dunno, but if we could get Ben Gazzara to attend the opening night life would be basically complete. Now, there is a man's man.
