Today in worrying about the Mars Bar

Well, it's that end-of-the-month time... and I'm hearing the same rumors as last month regarding the Mars Bar's future. One rumor: No one has placed a beer order for the weekend... Another rumor has the bar on a month-to-month lease...

Adding to some hysteria... several readers spotted workers alongside the bar yesterday...

In the morning, Georgia Lillie took this shot...


...And later in the day...





EV Grieve contributor Bobby Williams was on the scene. A worker said that they were testing soil samples to monitor the water level.

We've been trying to figure this out ourselves ... if we can remember the formula ... the volume of water and VT = Vs + Vv = Vs + Vw + Va is the total volume (that is soil volume + water volume + air space)...

Will get back to you on that... Meanwhile, go have a drink while you can.

If you're serious about making those calculations, this might be my favorite EV Grieve post ever. Leave no stone unblogged.

I've heard from a pretty reliable source that Mars Bar will be open at least until summer. I hope so, I want to spend another Easter Sunday in the joint.

I say we join Marty on Easter Sunday - we EVGRIEVERS to take over a designated corner of the joint. What say you?

There was a lot of drilling like this going on in the hood several years ago. Does anyone else remember that?

Dang..I've been going there even when I don't feel it just because you never know you'll walk over and it will be padlocked. I'll probably go tonight.

The law requires such exploratory drilling when you build a building . they are looking at subsoil conditions , for rock for pile footings and also water presence to develope a plan for a dewatering system to be used during construction . Nothing unusual here .

I say keep an eye on the people who live upstairs. When you see moving trucks outside, then you'll know.
