No, no, no. It's more like a pumpkin vine. It's a beer wine and the cans and bottles are stretched out on the ground. It's just natures way of being friendly. Who wants to have to climb a tree to get a beer.

It must be at least 30 years since I've heard a bar refered to as a beer garden. And the person who used the term was a good 30 years older than I was.

Definitely a gas leak, but accidental or insurance scam? Fortunately, nobody seriously hurt, but it's been done before.

Immediately after the blast, people in Taylor started cleaning the streets. That's what they do, said Taylor Guest, who witnessed the explosion. "We're a small, tight-knit community," she said.

Leave shiat alone. It makes it so much easier for investigators to try and piece together what may have happened.

FTA: "Before it blew up Tuesday, the 110-year-old building served as a theater, bar, restaurant, grocery store and home"

Damn!, that's a sweet set-up!  How do I get a grocery store and a bar to start operating out of MY home? (And, by "home," I mean: "my one bedroom-apartment.")

Move into an apartment above a grocery and /or bar?

It's actually not as much fun or convenient as you might think.

I've heard it used a few times here in Louisville - strong German background.

But a bar is not a beer garden. It's a large outside area with picnic tables and preferably music. String lights at night. Usually gravel has been put down. Usually fenced in. Often an appurtenance OF a bar.

The building had been turned into a home, but it was vacant

Someone was cooking meth.

And usually the reason for it is to comply with local laws on where alcoholic beverages may be served and/or consumed, when the crowd to be served far exceeds the capacity of the establishments.  It's common for the consumption of alcohol to be prohibited in public, outdoor spaces, and for there to be requirements for a defined, limited-access barrier between a defined space for the consumption of alcohol outdoors versus the rest of the public space.

It also may accommodate multiple proprietors, so that multiple vendors may compete to sell booze to the crowd, with a shared place to drink independent of who's business the alcohol was served from.

It's certainly possible.  It's also possible that if gas appliances hadn't been properly hooked up that a leak let methane build up inside until it found an ignition source.

I wonder if it'll still be a pile of rubble this time next year.

It this case, that beer garden is used for smokers, since smoking is not permitted indoors in any establishment in Nebraska, including bars.  Thus, we have beer gardens attached to bars, for smokers.

farkitallletitend: I wonder if it'll still be a pile of rubble this time next year.


I'm going to hazard a guess that the bulk of the loose rubble will be carted off, if only because of how widespread the damage from the blast was.  Any portions of walls or foundations that remain well-affixed to the ground will probably remain in place unless the property owner has the means and will to pay for further demolition.

If this had been a purpose-built single-family home or other structure set well back from the road that had simply collapsed from deterioration then it would probably linger as a rubble pile for some time, because it wouldn't have directly affected adjacent property and it wouldn't pose a significant risk right up against a right-of-way, but having been built directly fronting a major thoroughfare and having caused such widespread damage I don't think they can simply ignore the pile of debris.

That's pretty funny.

On the other hand the ashtray-smell of most bars around here when I came of age was a good part of why I didn't really do the bar scene.

That's exactly what a beer garden is. A fenced in area for drinking.  In my area they are mostly at outdoor concerts and fairs.  They don't want customers just strolling around carrying alcohol so you wait in line for half an hour.  Buy two incredibly overpriced beers.  Slam them down in under a minute. Then walk out the exit and continue on with your concerting or fairing.

So yes, there was a time when you could have a beer garden at Soundgarden.
