PI Update: Construction Outside Mannequins
CLICK ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE
Ahh, it's great to be back in the United States of America. And what better place to spend a warm sunny morning than beautiful Pleasure Island! There is a small construction project going on near the old upstairs Mannequins entrance. I really could not determine what they are doing as inside the walls the ground is covered with black mesh. The bottom left stock photo shows that plants used to grow in that area. Going up to the doors, the light was just perfect to reflect on the still-hanging mannequin near the bathrooms. Does this answer the mannequin controversy? Yes, numerous ones still hang inside the closed club.
McDonald's closed April 30th and construction walls now surround it too. Interestingly, the newest edition of the DTD Guidemap already lists Pollo Campero in that spot, opening Fall 2010. Celebrate Tonight remains missing from that newest Guidemap but the Soundstage logo remains at that closed club. Meanwhile (above right), Motion & Rock'n'Roll Beach Club remain untouched.
