Another Glimpse of White Eagle Tavern

I was walking along Fifth this afternoon, & passed Mary's, the bar that has taken the place of Smolen's (see yesterday's post). 

Oddly enough, as I walked a block farther south, what did I see but another old Polish bar, the long-closed White Eagle Tavern, newly emerged from scaffolding.  The timing was strange, & it seemed to cheer & sadden me at the same time.  Wonder what faux French Quarter joint this will turn into next.
