When I first posted about the new Waterstone Bar and Grille, which is taking over from the troubled Coconuts, someone named dispatch posted an insightful comment.
I e-mailed disptach, trying to get more information on the place. Today, dispatch e-mailed me back.
Her name is actually Emily, and though I'm still not quite sure how she knows all this stuff, she sounds like she knows what she's talking about.
Here is Emily's e-mail, which has details about the opening date, as well as the owner's plans for the place:
The original owner of Coconuts took ownership back after it went downhill (basically after the stabbing some months ago). She is launching it as a higher-end lesbian bar (although I believe anyone is allowed to come, not just females) ...
During the day, it will be a bar & grille with happy hour specials, lunch & dinner (catering to the local crowd & hospital). Friday nights she is having a live band and DJ. Saturday nights will be a DJ starting around 10ish.
The inside is much nicer than the original, as she basically gutted it and re-did everything. During the Spring & Summer, she'll be able to open the large bay windows, as well as serve food outside.
I believe she is scheduled to open the week after Thanksgiving, with the Grand Opening being that Sat night (Dec 5th). The owner is virtually impossible to get a hold of, so hopefully that gives you a good idea of what she's trying to do with the place.
