Journeyman damaged by car crash; closed for repairs

enhF94 Jun 19, 2011 05:14 PM

From their Facebook page, cut and pasted verbatim:

"Journeyman had a car crash into its front facade this evening around 11pm. Until we have been able to repair the structural damage, we will be closed. People with reservations will be contacted, but until we are permitted to re-enter the space, assess the damage and recoup our losses, we will be closed & unable to answer our usual telephone number."

and later in the thread...

"Just a quick note to say that no one was injured. We.re shoring up the damaged wall as best we can and crossing our fingers for quick and easy repairs."

    How in the world? That location is the last place I would ever think of a car crash....

      I know, right? It'd be a pretty short run-up.

        Wonder if the driver hit the gas and not the brake when they were turning around to get out of that back lot?

          That's really too bad. I was just there on Saturday for their outdoor barbecue, thinking it would be nice to check it out soon.

            I saw somewhere (Twitter? Facebook?) that they might be able to continue having their Saturday outdoor BBQ. Not sure if that's confirmed, though.

              That would be nice. I only got a 1/4 chicken, thigh and drumstick, last week, no sides---I was low on cash after the farmer's market. The chicken was on the underdone side, however, and there were parts that i couldn't even eat. Next time I'd ask them to throw it back on the grill for a few more minutes. The pulled pork looked good. The veal rib was intriguing-looking, but also a bit pale/grey. The cornbread looked very eggy, almost like spoonbread, in a could be very good or very wrong kind of way! Very curious to try some of these items.

              Well the first thing that came to my mind is that a Fung Wah bus got very very lost.
