Looks Like Rudy's Won The Backyard Battle!

Popped into Rudy's (my favorite Hell's Kitchen dive bar) for the first time in months yesterday, and lo--it looks like they've won the battle to reopen their backyard! It seems like years (and it has been) since we watched the 2008 Vice-Presidential debates in the kind of revamped space (they'd spruced it up just enough to make it seem less rat-prone than it had been...), but not long after, the bar got into a bit of a fight with the city over some construction, etc., and the it's been closed ever since. But according to one regular, as of last week it's pretty much all fixed up and back in action!

A movie-screening wall!

Even the inside seemed a bit cleaner than usual, though it was fairly early in the day...
