    I've heard they are closed for renovations, although I don't know for how long.

      The holiday season is a strange time to renovate in that it's a pretty lucrative time for the staff.

        I ran into one of the bartenders over the weekend and she told me that they discovered some pretty extreme water damage in the concrete under the coolers so they had to tear the place up. Unfortunately the permit for the roof deck is still in limbo so this bit of work is unrelated to that major expansion. Sounds like a real bummer for all the staff since the demolition and repair work was unexpected...

          I wonder if that is were 4-6 ounces of every "pint" I bought ended up? It certaintly wasn't in my glass. Maybe they need to check their other locations for something similar going on ;-)

            Ha! That place is one of the prime offenders of "not quite a pint" and "WTF, why is this beer $3 more than anywhere else?" ...the downtown location doesn't seem to be so horrifically overpriced. I could never figure out how beers were priced there...at the Publick House, it is based on alcohol content/glass size (by state law) but at Buk's you would see a 10oz domestic microbrew at 5% ABV for $7, but as a 16oz (proper pint) for $5 other places.

              Some of us consider 20oz a proper pint. But I am on the wrong board, even the wrong continent, to be saying that. :)

                Yeah, the last beer I had there was like $8.17, ridiculous. I also had the worst cuban sandwich ever once - here's hoping the revovations go slowly and cost a boatload you hipster hucksters.
