Some great news from Manager Mark Dukes’ blog, posted on Monday:
“The building which houses the Chrome Horse and 3rd Street Live is structurally safe and sound.
“An independent structural engineer – hired by the Chrome Horse – inspected the building from basement to ceiling Monday morning and pronounced it safe to repair the business. He said there was no structural damage from the flood; nothing in the foundation had moved, no cracks, no nothing. This confirms what we have been thinking from eyeballing the structure the past couple weeks, so obviously we’re very happy to get an official confirmation.
“For those of you who have run into people who insist the building is, or has been, demolished, have ‘em check this out. Or better yet, have ‘em drive by and see for themselves. We’re not going anywhere, and neither is this stubborn 100-year-old building! – Duker”
If anyone out there has updates to pass along about other flooded local joints, let me know.
