Try to predict when (not if) the building formerly known as Uncle Bill's will meet its dusty doom in the not-so-tender embrace of a backhoe or wrecking ball. Pick the date, hour and minute that clanking heavy equipment meets brick facade with a shuddering "Booooooom!" while Lennie Chism (poor Lennie!) stands by and weeps bitterly at the death of his grand schemes.
Though that whole Lennie weeping thing is not an integral part of the contest. The point is to predict when demolition will happen...
Just use the comments section to post your prediction. I'd urge readers to use your "customary posting name" or your own name, one or the other, otherwise EVERYBODY will be able to claim victory if the contest is won by "Anonymous." Also, if your date passes without demolition, you are allowed to pick a new date.
I'll try to keep linking back to this post to keep the contest current and announce a winner when it happens.
What do you win? Just eternal blog-o-sphere glory at this point, plus my public urging that you become the recipient of free drinks from, well, whoever.
I'll post my prediction first: Monday, August 3, at noon.
