PI Update: Mannequins
CLICK ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE
Another beautiful weekend in O-town so let's head to Mannequins to see what's happening. One can see where the stairs used to lead to the 2nd Floor doors. Have to assume that ugly scar will be covered over with stucco. The left photo shows one of the towers they couldn't take down because of the Harley signs.
Contrary to rumors last week, the Mannequins signs remain on the building. For how long, we don't know! But I guess as long as the signs remain up, there is always that chance that Mannequins could reopen and the dance floor cranked up!
On the Waterfront side there are new stairs to one of the side doors. Interestingly, the railings feature black paint which is something different than all the other railings on the island which are more of a brown rust color. New stairs are not ordinarily something worth noting, but these stairs are very significant. Why? You don't build new stairs to a building that is going to be demolished. That's why. The band stand has also had some boards replaced which is an indication that it's not coming down either. Do they even use this stage though? Has anyone played up there since Hip Kitty on the closing weekend?
