Work on Howard Theater Starts!


I gave Howard Theater the Horse’s Ass Award at the beginning of the month. Well, I’ve gotten a few emails that work has finally started! Awesome. One reader sums it up nicely:

“It’s news because they are finally starting the long awaited work on Howard Theater.”

Indeed. And if you have Horse’s Ass Award recommendations please email me at princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com

  • vonstallin, where the hell have you been?!?!

  • meaning, it seems like youve been mia from the blog…not ‘where the hell have you been?!?!’ like ‘how could you not know what this is going to be’ cause i dont actually know either :/

  • how about the former jazz club on 1020 girard street. It’s been boarded up and for sale for at least 4 years!

    Race season started so I end up doing alot of crap when not out of town racing, like training n ordering parts and spending alot of time on my racing message boards…since its Contract Bid time again, I had to stop racing (last big accident took me out for 7 months).

    Plus my %$&* boss demoted me for 2 months because i wore earings to work (in this weeks rant and raves).

    So I think ill have some more time for a minute.

    Thanks 10:48am
    for the link I cant say I like the new front design, but ultra happy they are finaly doing somthing with this landmark. It bothered me for decades how it was so trashed. I still like the classic styles and would have loved a update like they did with the Tivoli Theater.

  • I agree with that the Howard Theater needs and is getting attention, as that and the former Wonder Bread factory could be the spark for revitalization, not necessarily gentrification as that trend is suspect.
    I can recall the Howard Theater was abandoned in the early and mid 80’s as the now renovated Southern Aid Building nearby was derelict, as on cold winter days, men would gather in front keeping warm with setting barrels of trash on fire.
    It will be a blessing to have the Howard Theater operational again.
