before pictures later but here's what she's become. just doing private events right now but it'll open up to the public final week of January leading into Super Bowl week. excuse the lack of alcohol. the event over the weekend got pretty rowdy. still no official name. it's now down to 10 finalists with a decision coming Friday. Too many people to thank but major props to Ryan1969, Peacedog, thebends9, my guy Jeremiah at Hobby Lobby in Carmel, IN and Frame USA in Cincy, OH. I fell 2 posters short but, alas, no one wanted to give up an Emek Foo Copper or Sperry Council Bluffs Blue Linen for a fair price so...

It appears that there are quite a few load-bearing posters there. Nice collection.

more thanks to sasquatch, clem99, rupert, Rob Jones, Mike at Lonestar Posters, dudes at Poster Cabaret in Austin, billthebassist, gig gallery, sanje123, kung fu nation, itsdug and wolfgangsvault (doug suggested some reprint wolfgangs posters which wound up working awesomely in the bathroom hallway). all the posters have been framed with acrylic (even the one from peacedog) and have all been locked to the walls. there are video cameras throughout and there will be multiple bouncers but inevitably, fudge will get f'd up. it's bound to happen but that's what insurance is for. hope you guys/gals enjoy and hope y'all can come to Indianapolis to have a drink with me.

Speechless. :notworthy: Gotta love Jack and Meg on the bathroom doors and also the lit up boxes for both Emek QOTSA.
All with plexi and locked up on the wall. Impressive.
Best of luck in your crazy venture. :clap:
