Hop Sing Laundromat aiming for 12/12/12

The anticipated 11/11/11 opening date probably won't work.

Hop Sing Laundromat aiming for 12/12/12


The Chinatown bar Hop Sing Laundromat (1029 Race St.) passed its health inspection last week.

As finishing touches are applied, it's awaiting an inspection and sign-off by inspectors for the state Liquor Control Board.

The projected opening date of 11/11/11 appears to be nonworkable, says Le, the owner, "but how about 'sometime before 12/12/12.' "

The entryway flooring, you may recall, is covered with thousands of pennies, while the bar is topped with thousands of nickels.
