The Downtown Project’s Bunkhouse Saloon renovation has hit a snag. If you remember, the live-music venue closed on July 1 for remodeling. The idea was to reopen the bar 60 days later. Well, it’s been more than 120 days, and still no beautified Bunkhouse—and no kickass underground punk and metal shows for me to enjoy in the urban core. According to a Downtown Project rep, once renovations got underway, it became increasingly obvious that the old building needs a lot more work, mainly a new roof. The reopening date has been pushed to February.
