21 Nov 11 Construction Intervention: The Blarney Stone

Forty years ago, the Blarney Stone, a family owned Irish bar, opened its doors in the Financial District to much success. But, after the death of the Keane family patriarch and 9/11, business has suffered, leaving brothers Teddy and Joe struggling to carry on the family business. Now, after 40 years of wear and tear, The Blarney Stone desperately needs renovation in order to attract the new wave of young residents living in the Financial District. However, renovation has been out of the question and the bar is literally disintegrating around them! A construction intervention would resurrect the spirit of the Blarney Stone and bring in new customers to this much loved neighborhood institution. When someone new walks in, they almost immediately walk out because nearly everything is original from 1969! From the barely functioning steam table to the cracked tile floor, the kitsch of this bar is killing its revenue. Although these troubles haven’t stopped loyal regular customers from enjoying great food and cheap drinks, the grungy appearance has hindered the flow of new clientele that Joe and Teddy need to make up for the loss of business they suffered after 9/11. While the brothers try their best to keep profits up, they are barely making ends meet and fear losing the family business that was their father’s pride and joy. Nearly everything could use a facelift. The floors are dingy, the ceiling tiles are mismatched and water damaged, the air conditioning ducts leak, the

27 Jun 11 The Greatest Beer Pong Table In Construction 2

larger sample of whats going on in the construction of the greatest beer pong table. music: george thorogood, I drink alone

Danby model DTT-420W 2-speed twin tub washing machine in action. This type of agitation was developed and patented (and seemingly licensed out) by GE. Twin tub washers were all the rage from the early 60’s to the early 80’s and a number of manufacturers made them. Danby is now the lone maker of twin tubs in North America. Of course, the machine is made in China – where else? This particular one was made in 2007 and I acquired it second-hand. Danby made some minor revisions later on that saw the wash tub door hinged on like the spinner door. It isn’t heavy and washes clothes very well. The spinner spins at a whopping 1600 RPM. Most top-load machines spin at less than 1000 RPM. It’ll wash up to 10 lbs. at once. The tub is actually bigger than you think. The target market for this machine is apartments, condos with no connections, country houses, students, dorms and the like. If you despise doing laundry, this is not the machine for you as you manually have to switch the cycles and such. It’s a different way of doing things but it doesn’t take long and works very well.
