Snag an invitation to Hop Sing Laundromat's opening

After all the months of wild speculation, rumors, and innuendo, the bar Hop Sing Laundromat will open at 1029 Race St. shortly. That is, it's allowed to open, since the state Liquor Control Board today cleared it for liftoff.

When it will open is anyone's guess, as the owner, a gentleman named Le, has been futzing obsessively with certain details all through the project, ripping things out and putting them back together.

Want to be among the first to see the penny-covered foyer or the nickel-covered bar or the handsome library or the one-of-a-kind shelving system that will allow staff to retrieve bottles from great heights?

Le says he will select 50 Twitter followers -- the handle is @HopSingLaundry.
