DS Update: Will Jaleo Arrive On Time?

The sign says "Coming In 2018" and today is the last day of 2018! Will Jaleo open today?
Letters that spell out the name wrap around the front and east side of the building.
While this sign faces the Village Lake side of the structure.

Update: Blog reader Madman Ray reports they are shooting for a January 17/18 or so opening date. Thanks, Ray!

Club Reports: Independent Bar, The Beacham, Vyce Lounge, Bullitt Bar, Peek Downtown, Celine

You know by now if it's at all possible, I try to include Independent Bar in my Saturday night travels!
And just as it should be, DJ Indie John (USA) was leading the festivities as Ernie controlled the lights and sounds!
While not as crowded as some Saturday nights here, the place was hardly empty either.
The music 80's New Wave kept the floor active.

Always fun times at I-Bar!
Now over to The Beacham.
DJ D-Strong (USA) in the booth when I first arrived.
Things were just picking up when I first arrived.
But two long lines outside led to a quick fill-up inside!
Taking over next, DJ Richie Rich (USA) along with MC Yung Scholar.
The Friday and Saturday night format is Hip Hop.
And it always packs the place!
Spotted on stage: Cockyskeet
Whenever I see Richie Rich, it brings back memories of House of Blues!
Everyone gets in free before 11PM on Saturday nights.
First visit to Vyce Lounge since 2015!
