Babe's moving to........

I heard this morning that Babe's might be moving to to the NE corner of AV. 10 and calle 10. This is the former location of the restaurant La Barbacoa which moved fairly recently to the location formerly occupied by the Beer Bucket. Now La Barbacoa is closed and I think the building is scheduled to be demolished soon.
I have not verified this yet but will try to verify this possible move.
I am sure, if true, the move to a larger location which is just down the street from the current location, would make Babe's fans celebrate.

7:30 update............
Two things that I have verified and can say with certainty:
1) Ula Gula is only rubble, totally demolished.
2) Scream Ink has relocated on calle 10 and is now between AV. 10 & 15, 100 or so steps west of Los Tabernacos and one building east of the corner of calle 10 and AV. 15.

I was told earlier tonight that the Italian restaurant that was just to the west of Babe's is taking over the former location of La Barbacoa, formerly the Beer Bucket.
Also, was told that the construction company that is building the new complex is going to build a "temporary building" for Babe's just to the west of their current location (an area that has already been cleared). This I find hard to believe.
Will try to stay on top of this ever evolving story.

An Italianplace is not taking over the beer bucket. The former Beer Bucket will be L'ambassade, the bar that used to be next door. They are hoping to open tomorrow night.

That is exactly what I was told but I just though that L'ambassade was an Italian restaurant in Playa.
Guess that I was getting Ambasciata D'Italia restaurant mixed up with L'ambassade.

Thank you!, Yes, that would be wonderful. I just hope that Per and Lena didnīt sell the restaurant, but if they did, I hope the new owner can keep their delicious food =)

Los Tabernacos is located between AV. 10 and 15 as is Scream Ink. So yes that would be Scream Ink is located one building east of AV. 15 on calle 10.

"LOS TABERNACOS 10st between 10th Av. & 15th Av. C.P. 77710 Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico"
Scream Ink is located about 100 feet west of Los Tabernacos in the same block.
Does that help you out

Babe's will be moving to a unit that is being built for them just behind their current location. If you have eaten at Babe's, you probably know Max.
I ran into Max at DAC this morning and he told me that is where Babe's is moving to and I would think that he is in the know.
Exactly when the move is to be made, he did not know an exact date. I guess it depends on just how quickly the new unit can be built and equipped.
