Comment of the Day: Et Tu, Marquis II?

Here on Eating Our Words, the commenters absolutely make the blog, and our Comment of the Day honors the best of the bunch.

Every day, we read you guys and pick the commenter, or commenters, who made us laugh, cry, salivate over something delicious, or think about things in a new way.

In return, we offer them a virtual White Russian.

Well, the Marquis II done got a facelift, as Glen Livet reported today. It's going to take years to build back up the proper amount of bar crust over there.

Early Cuyler, for one, isn't happy:

First the West Alabama Ice House gets all fancy-pants, now the Marquis II as well. I don't think I want to even see the new version of the Moon Tower Inn after they are done remodeling. There are not that many bars left around these days where you can get away from amateur hour.

At least there's still the Lone Star Saloon.
