Live demolition online? Maybe. Maybe not.

The Ruby Tuesday’s restaurant chain has taken out a lot of ads in newspapers and on the internet recently strongly implying that it’s going to demolish one of its locations and stream the video live on its web site ( There’s a countdown clock on the web site which indicates the demolition is scheduled for this coming Tuesday, August 3. The ad and the press releases out of Tuesday leave out some very important facts, which is why I wrote “implying” at the top of this. I’m not entirely convinced that this isn’t some kind of trickery. But I guess we’ll find out in a couple of days.
