The Marina: It might have taken longer than originally expected, but the wheels are once again in motion surrounding Bin38's takeover of the Jones space across the street. Jones, which at this point was more bar than restaurant, finally closed this week (note: see update below), and the Bin38 foursome—Don Davis, Peter Scully, Shaw Amirghassemkhany and David Sheridan—is still very much on the way. The initial ETA for their new, upscale sports bar project is now early fall, and last we heard, the early working name was Scott Street Bar & Grill. Don't look now, but the Tipsy Pig might soon have some competition in the upscale bar realm.

Update: After being closed since last Friday, Jones reopened tonight. Further updates from the zombie bar with sporadic hours as they come in, naturally.
