RIP Margaritaville

So I planned to post about the amazing time I had on Saturday night with my friends and cousins. But that is going to have to wait because my basement is full of water.


The nor'easter hit Jersey pretty hard. At about 3pm on Sunday we started getting water in the basement, and the water is still coming in today. Now, if I had a normal person's basement, I would be upset but wouldn't really care that much. But have you seen my basement??? We have arcade games, pinball, air hockey, a big tv, and of course a full sized fridge full of beer. Its like a playground for adults. The best part is the bar, which is fondly named Margaritaville:


To make a long story short, we got several feet of water in the basement, and it is sewer water. Every time we pumped the water out, it kept coming back in. As of today, Tuesday, we still have about a foot of water down there. We got all of the low-lying stuff out so we didn't lose any pictures or memorabilia or anything like that. But our couch was floating around, the comfy chair is ruined, all the wood stuff (bar, entertainment center, shelving) is warped and going to rot, the carpet is done, and apparently the walls are going to have to be replaced as well if we can ever get the water out.

I am really sad about it because this is the place where everyone gathers, where I have had some of the best times of my life with my best friends. Its like a piece of history is gone. *tear*

OMG-That sucks! Will insurance cover it?

This is truly awful. At least the bar went out with a big bang. On it's final night here on the planet it went out in style. It served us well.
But just like Nawlins it will be rebuilt bigger and better than evah. Of course if you need our assistance in anyway diddy and I will be glad to help in the rebuilding process. It may be gone now but it will be back.
I know this is not funny but I can so see the dog floating on the couch as you say it's gone. It's all gone.

That is one thing that I don't miss about NNJ the floods! At least SNJ has one thing going for them.

: ( I am sorry. More sorry for myself because I have never been invited over to that awesome basement!

Patsydarling: I kept saying that all day yesterday: Its gooooone! Its all goooooone! And I was trying to be funny about it but its just too friggin sad.

The only good thing is that its almost summer so we can just party on the deck till the neighbors call the cops.

Oh no! That sounds like the best basement ever! Maybe this will cheer you up - There are action figures of JBJ and Richie coming out this summer and their new CD is out in June!

Also, I officially now Tag you ...read the last 2 posts on my blog.

JM said...

Wow, that sucks. Hope you'll be able to mop up and dry out quickly; version 2.0 will be better than ever, I'm sure.

SUPER SIZED TEAR!

Did the plaque live? Thank god you didn't lose any of your memorabilia - that would have been super awful.

If you have a rebuilding party, let me know!

So sorry about all that stress! Hopefully, now you can have an even better bar! (Though I'd be really sad about losing the one you have!)

Shedding a tear for ya!!

Leo said...

That is my dream room you have there and I definitely feel your pain.

LisaBinDaCity said...

So sorry, Hon. Hopefully you will be able to rebuild it and make it even more wonderful!

8 inches of rain was just miserable...

Bev said...

Ugghh - water damage sucks! We've had our basement flood a couple of times, but at least it was clean water!

Friends of mine went through this a couple (three?) years ago. It totally sucked, except for the incredulous laughter we enjoyed while watching complete white trash take the sewage soaked mattresses, etc. from the curb all the way down the street. The woman next door even videotaped them taking her nasty mattress.
