RE: They fixed my favorite beach bar in Da Nang
One of my favorite restaurants when i was in college did something similar to what you described about your college experience. They were slammin' every day of the week and then for no good reason closed for renovations, it took them 3 weeks to reopen for business. Many of the staff found new employment during the forced break and when we went back the vibe was totally different and it was now "fancy".... people stopped going and the place shut down permanently 6 months later. Bad mistake for sure.
On the other hand that beach bar you are talking about looks amazing but the ocean has a lot to do with why i feel that way. You are a lucky dude to be able to live there.
