Oh no, they're all $30K millionaires. I think most of them live "by the Galleria," which I believe in many cases is "home at Mommy's."
I hate the butterfly effect on the top level. It SCREAMS "come hang out at me douche bags!"

the bitterness is strong in this one :)

I get sick of the affliction crowd as much as anyone but I won't mind having a decent sports bar in the area.

I drive past this a few times a week on my way home/errands/etc., and I hate the butterfly effect on the top level. It SCREAMS "come hang out at me douche bags!" However, it will likely be packed all the time. If it's the same owners as Drake, all their regulars will surely head here during the day, then Drake at night. And the line for Drake is packed at all times, which completely turns me off. I'm not a fan of the see and be seen bars.

my quote was referrign to those stupid townhomes on the rr tracks, not the people who go to reign. lol.

you know, i just drove by the other day and don't like the view from the front as much as i do from the side. still, i agree a real sports bar (if that's what it turns out to be) will be welcome, esp vs another 'club.'

I've really enjoyed the posts and photo's on the old stand. Worked for Cook Paint & Varnish on Summer St. back in the early 70's. Ate many a lunch there over the years.

Social Junkie was hot in the beginning with young black crowds but the amount of traffic to there has been down considerably.

The Washington corridor seems to be going towards more restaurants and retail, and less of a nightlife crowd. Midtown and downtown are those hotspots right now.

This bar has caused a lot of problems for the neighborhood. Hope to see it go.

Bring back the Pig Stand.

The shelf life for these clubs is about 3-4 years.  They print money when they open if they can establish themselves as the hot new club.  People flock to them in hopes of being able to rub elbows with rappers, athletes and high rollers.  Eventually the A list people move on to the next hot new club and interest wanes.  Then, a bouncer breaks someone's nose and the club gets sued.  The owners do not want to put any more money into the club for upkeep because they are saving up to open something new.  The place gets worn out and the crowds go elsewhere.  TABC dings them a couple of times for selling to minors or after hours.  The lease gets more expensive and the owners bail.  I just hope that someone comes along and breaks that life cycle with this location.  Too many nice new things coming to 1st/6th ward to have another big noisy club right in the middle of all the nice new stuff coming in.

What kinds of problems? Did it cause parking issues because of their horrible valet system? Noise?

Parking problems. Drunk patrons causing noise. Lude behavior in the neighborhood (near their cars). One neighbor woke up to find two people having sex on his porch. I live near by, but far enough to not be too affected, but I constantly hear the horror stories. I know of 2 neighbors that have moved because of it.

Something is going to replace Social Junkie bar and the building next door. Braun Enterprises acquired the warehouse next to Social Junkie at 1005 Sawyer on the corner of Center St. There's a filing for 1005 Sawyer LLC too. Any ideas what's planned here?

 

THANK GOD!

Braun Enterprises is marketing 2412 Washington Avenue, where Social Junkie is located. It was also Sawyer Park and The Pig Stand.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that almost half the comments in that Swamplot piece were pro-Pig Stand, and were clearly from folks who had patronized it before its untimely closure.
