PI Update: End Of The End For Comedy Warehouse (Part 2)

This past Tuesday we showed you the beginning of the end of Comedy Warehouse as seen during the middle of 2013.  So let's cross the No. 4 Bridge.  (Subsequently renamed the No. 5 Bridge) to see the demolitions!
Guests in July, 2013 encountered numerous walls on their trek across Pleasure Island!
But Laffers Cantina and Comedy Warehouse, both behind demolition walls, still stood.
As did (right to left) the Lombard Promenade, Curl by Sammy Duval  & 8TRAX!  Notice at 8TRAX how there was the main club building in silver but also a front lowrise section.
But by early August, Comedy Warehouse was gone!
Reduced to rubble!
Laffers remained standing.....for the moment.
8TRAX wasn't touched.....for the moment!
When I returned a week or so later, Laffers Cantina had been crunched!
Then later in August, the 8TRAX demolition had begun!
It looked like the whole club was coming down but little did we know then that they were only shaving off that front lowrise section!
Demolition also began at Apricot Lane.
And by September, it too was gone along with PI Live Bar!
Meanwhile, construction of a bypass around the main section of PI foretold of major demolitions to come! Would BET Soundstage be next? Would Adventurers Club be next? Would Mannequins be next?
By October, everything on that side of the Island was gone except 8TRAX & Mannequins!
Things looked bleak even for Fuego by Sosa Cigars!
But even then, there seemed to be hope for Mannequins!
