You remember all those space movies where the astronauts go to some dingy astronaut bar?

This is *the* astronaut bar.

Yes, I understand.

The "closing forever" part is what I don't get. The NYT article says it's been rescued (new grill and all) instead of being forced to close down.

Enlighten me! :smile:

The NYT article is from 2000, when economics was going to force the bar to close.

The road that fronts the bar has changed over the years from a two lane Farm to Market road to a seven lane thoroughfare. The land on which the bar is located has also changed hands multiple times. The writing is on the wall; that land is now worth far more than a dingy bar could ever come up with in rent.

Ahh. A more recent article: http://www.collectspace.com/news/news-120209a.html

Aah, now it makes sense. I was looking at the wrong line (Friday, December 4, 2009 :redface:) and was under the impression the article was fairly recent.

It's a shame, but the writing was on the wall even back then.
Everyone realizes that the future remains uncertain for the Outpost. It sits on a very expensive piece of real estate in a rapidly developing commercial corridor.

Maybe a relocation is in order...
