    I’ve bought a couple of these (thankfully not the Woolworth or Parkside editions). They’re quality.

    I'm just now seeing this. Call Mays Auto in Woodlawn for this type of thing, although they're really shorthanded these days. Or even Element Garage. I have a Saab and the dude there, Edwin, is a great mechanic and lives in Avondale. I bet he might help you out. Element does pretty much any Euro/Asian car.

    It’s supposed to open this fall, more info should be out closer to then I’d imagine. They are excited because it fits the covid/post covid ideal bar set up. 90% outdoor set up

    So Trim Tab, Mayawell, Good People, and now Fancy’s all temporarily shut down bc of employees testing positive. Any others?

    Yet Innis Free continues to run at full capacity and somehow has avoided any employees getting sick?

    Alabama Power app says 8:30 for when they expect it to be back on in our neighborhood. I sure would like it to come back on sooner though.

    Not sure why people think you have to be shut down for a long period. It’s not like Corona is a radioactive goo that lingers. You quarantine everyone who had contact, deep clean to be safe even though CDC says surfaces are not the main mode of transmission, and then you can reopen.

    All of their other employees tested negative. Yes to what Arrec said, they’ve learned the virus is primarily spread through breath/aerosol so the whole contaminated surface thing isn’t primary threat

    Seems like there should be a different standard for venues that produce product for off site consumption. I have no idea if the virus could spread that way but they’re sending product all over the state, not exactly the same thing as a local watering hole.

    Like I said, CDC says surface transmission is a very low percentage. Then add in shipping times etc and the odds of transmitting the virus on a shipped product is basically zero.

    Birmingham exec sheds light on plans for new honky-tonk bar in Parkside

    A prominent leader in Birmingham business has big plans for a historic building in one of the most dynamic parts of the city.

    Craft O’Neal is teaming up with several key local players to redevelop the American Laundry Co. building in Parkside for a honky-tonk style bar and restaurant concept with a major focus on live music and events.

    “The food and beverage and live music business is something that has always been intriguing to me, and I began getting serious about developing a new concept for Birmingham about a year ago,” O’Neal told the Birmingham Business Journal.

    O’Neal said a strong team has been formed to develop the concept with several big names in Birmingham real estate, food and entertainment.

    Creature's Mike Gibson and Geoff Golden are serving as architect and general contractor. Award-winning chef Chris Hastings of Hot & Hot Fish Club is consulting on the food and beverage concept as well as restaurant design. And Michael Panepento, the owner of Alabama Music & Audio Supervision and former COO and founding member of Workplay, is consulting on the music venue design, as well as technology and equipment needs.

    An entity belonging to the O’Neal Industries executive recently acquired the historic building for the new establishment. The 28,000-square-foot, two-story brick industrial building has a storied history in the city’s commercial laundry industry and will benefit from renovation. O’Neal said construction is expected to begin in September.

    “This venue will add a world-class amenity for the vibrant Parkside district, our city and region,” he said. “We expect this new and exciting concept to be very popular locally and draw people to Birmingham from throughout the region, providing a significant economic impact for our city.”

    The Parkside area is seeing dramatic changes with more than 1,000 new apartments in the pipeline and more office and retail space planned for the district. The new project also comes at a time when Birmingham restaurants and bars are feeling the heat from the coronavirus pandemic as they face one obstacle after another this year.

    Are you all (in your particular circles) starting to know more people getting this? An employee's wife was exposed to someone over the weekend that tested positive. She's a major hypochondriac, so employee is basically like, "See you in two weeks". I don't blame him, but it does highlight how the people I know either seem totally nonplussed by this OR are convinced a diagnosis means certain, immediate death.

    Yeah, it's 100% getting closer and closer to me. Two weeks ago, I had spoken to maybe 3 acquaintances who had it, but last week things changed big time. Two good friends in Mobile and another in Denver all got it. Then on Thursday, my wife found out her SIL (wife's brother's wife) who lives in Baldwin County had/had it, and my wife had been with the SIL a few days prior. Wife tested negative on Friday, but wife's dad and brother have tested positive. Presumably my wife's mom has it, but she isn't going to get tested until next week since she is quarantining with wife's dad. So far, all have very mild symptoms, and wife's SIL is basically over it. Wife's dad said he had a 99F fever and sinus congestion but not much else.

    Oh and colleague's daughter tested positive yesterday, and when he found out he immediately left the office. He tested negative this morning.

    Edit: I'll add that I am still not aware of any of my friends in Bham who have gotten it.

    I know a fair amount of people that have gotten it. Neighbor/good friend tested positive for a three week span and said it was the least shitty of his sicknesses he had all year

    another good friend who was careful before said the test was the worst part

    Two uncles had it. One was fine the whole time and one is somewhat of a hypochondriac so he made them put him in the hospital even though the doctors were like you are fine

    College golfer at UAB tested positive and then his dad ended up getting it. The dad had the worst case of anyone I know. Spent 2 nights in the hospital but is over it

    I have been tested twice. First time was caution bc of the first person I mentioned and was negative. Second time I was convinced I had it due to not feeling well and a funky taste in my mouth for five days but was negative again

    First two people I knew who had it were fine/only mild symptoms (one is in his 50s). The third almost died (37, good health). The fourth (31, good health) was comparable to having an awful stomach bug for two full weeks. The symptoms are all over the place.

    But the daily horror stories I hear from my wife about the hospital are enough to keep me locked inside and using hand sanitizer religiously.They are the worst instances, but some young healthy people are going to suffer long-term damage from it.

    First two were international travel (London I think). Latter two are healthcare workers. The guy that almost died literally heads a hospital COVID unit, so it was almost inevitable. The damage was surprising though.

    Most of the hospital cases are people who returned to work without proper precautions in place.
