The Will's Pub entertainment calendar has been blocked off for the past three days for a secret "sprucing up" project, so we swung by today to take a look at what Will Walker and crew have been up to and got hit in the face with a whole new bar.

The old bar in the back room has been resized down to an outpost, and the front "game room" has been repurposed as a new bar room.

Walker himself is pretty excited about these developments, pointing out that those there to hang out and socialize and those there to see live music will both be better serviced by the new layout. Plus, the front room is now decked out in Walker's favorite color combination: pink and green.

The new and improved decor is set to premier tonight at 8 p.m., and Walker says he hopes to have all the brass polished by tomorrow night's Sh-Booms album release show. Next project? Cleaning up the reputation of the notorious "shitty bathrooms at Will's Pub."
