    They used to have Fat Tuesday's in Church Street Station downtown. Back in the early 90's it was a huge hit. The line was out the door!

    I've heard that. There was a bit of a line this past Saturday night at the one at CityWalk and it was still kind of cold out there. When the warmer weather hits this place is going to have huge lines! Can't wait to try out the one made with Everclear pure grain alcohol! And some jello shots off the dollar menu, lol.

    Hopefully you stuck to one tonight. If not, you are a bit hungover right now I assume. :sick:

    LOL....yes, I stuck with one and it was delicious. I went with the pina colada. Biggest problem was these things are SOOO cold, it gave me a brain freeze and stomach freeze!

    I think Fat Tuesday could canibilize drink sales from the other clubs.

    Sources say the downstairs bar in 8TRAX has been removed and that 8TRAX itself is being used for the storage of merchandise belonging to the soon to open Vinylmation/D-Street guys clothing store.

    The new store on the West Side that features Vinylmations has quite a bit of decor from AC. In some ways good to see. In others ways, not so.
    On a side not -- on youtube:

    :confused3Sorry, what are we supposed to notice about the jealous neighbors? I'm probably missing something obvious, aren't I?

    The video quality ain't that great, but the guy looks like Carl, and the woman looks like another AC alum...

    Yes, Carl and Yvette, the French Canadian maid (or sometimes the esteemed club president). Lately I have seen her pushing Remy around in Chefs.
    Saw Carl not long ago in UK as a performer.

    That's right, I remember her as Pamelia the last time we were there.

    Carl is one of the World Showcase Players, who can be seen in the UK and Italy at times.

    well for the record bob, I don't believe anything you post anymore. I have a friend who used to work at Disney who knows someone who still works at Disney who says those mannequins pictures you posted were fake! I just can't believe your pictures are legit anymore:rotfl::rotfl::rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    OMG seriously...idiots! I hope they stick around to entertain me!

    LOL. One person told me he was going to personally BREAK IN to Mannequins just to prove the dance floor is not there. I encouraged him NOT to do anything as stupid as that.

    I wish I could reveal my sources of the pictures from inside Mannequins & Motion. Can't do that though.

    Bob, I appreciate all you have found out about our former PI clubs but I really am curious what's going on with my favorite club, CW. Any news on that space of any kind would really be appreciated. TIA!

    I posted a source-based rumor last month that comedy would be returning to Pleasure Island. What, where or when I don't know. The CW building remains basically blocked off and unused but supposedly is one of the former club builidings that is not going to be torn down.
