An Eyewitness Look at the New Crocodile

posted by on September 9 at 15:08 PM

Stranger freelancer Matt Garman, who just paid a visit to the under-construction, soon-to-be-reopened Crocodile Cafe, reports:

“So yes, all papered-up windows. [There’s] graffiti all over the place. I walked the edge, listening for music, but heard none. The side door near the bar area is a bathroom now, that much is abundantly clear.

“There was a gap in the paper right near the front door. I peered in, shielding my eyes from the sun, and saw everything moved around, and placed in piles. The tables are now learning against the walls. The temp wall is leaning against the stack of tables. The artwork and other weird shit that hung from the ceiling is gathered into piles in the front area. There were boxes bundles of unexpanded storage boxes. A box of trash liners sat in front of me, as well as one of those foam brushes you might use for painting, but no paint anywhere. Then a man in work clothes came into view, carrying a box of stuff from the performance area. He set it down near the other piles and returned to the performance area.

“[S]omeone at some point stuck a proportionate paper ‘A’ over the first ‘O’ [on the Crocodile sign] so it reads ‘Cracodile.’”

Oh my typos, I love you!

Look, I'm gonna go ahead and say that while I am loyal, SW's Reverb has scooped this story, and there's a hell of a lot of details to be found there.

Cracodile! Get it? Because there's a million pounds of crack hanging around 2nd and Blanchard!

This is really stretching the definition of "eyewitness", "look", and "visit".

Just go ahead and link to the Weekly's story already. You can even credit Hannah Levin as "former Stranger writer".
