DRILL, BABY, DRILL ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


It was "Drill, Baby, Drill" at 7th and Montana yesterday as construction went into overdrive at Greens-up!, the salad restaurant that has been trying for months to establish a beach head -- or even a lettuce head -- in the vacant space next to Our Favorite Starbucks. Drills were drilling, hammers were hammering and ear drums were bursting. "What's that racket?," I asked several of the Baristas on duty. Nobody knew for sure, but it sounded like the folks at Greens-up! were digging a hole to China for some Crispy Fried Won Tons. I walked next door to check things out, opened the door just a bit and shoved my Spycam through the crack. "Hey, what's that?," yelled one of the workers, no doubt in reference to my camera. I snapped a photo and fled the scene faster than you can say Balsamic Vinaigrette. It wasn't until later that I realized what the drilling was all about. If you examine the photograph above closely, you'll see what looks like a construction worker on the far right using a jack hammer to drill a hole in the floor of what appears to be a bathroom. Let's hope he doesn't find any Natural Gas ...!
