The bar, which has been undergoing renovations since the June 12 accident, announced its grand reopening in an email, through Twitter and on its website Saturday. The venue will open with a Raw Talent Reunion show, according to the email:
As you all may know My Sister’s Room has been closed due to renovations. However, after a short break we are proud to announce the grand reopening on 7/17/09!! This night will also be the Raw Talent Reunion show with many of your favorites returning to perform!
My Sisters Room has remained shuttered since the deck collapse June 12. The accident took place during the venue’s popular Xplosion Thursdays, which includes members of the Atlanta Xplosion women’s professional football team. The incident occurred a week after a boxing ring was added to the deck to host an annual women’s boxing fundraiser for a team in the Hotlanta Softball League.
The bar didn’t face a fine in the wake of the collapse, despite the City of Atlanta having no record that the structure was ever inspected or permitted.
