Nathaniel (Nan'l) Meiklejohn, the eponymous "bearded lady" of The Bearded Lady's Jewel Box, released a Kickstarter update yesterday about the upcoming bar's progress. The photo gallery included demonstrates in great detail the progress of the build-out, which is nearing completion. The "Cabinet of Curiosities" and the white oak bar with its purse hooks, seen in a previous update on the progress of the space, feature prominently in the photos, along with such noteworthy items as bar stools, glassware (in a video), and the flooring for the mezzanine.

Meiklejohn estimates it "will be a few weeks" before the doors are opened, suggesting a late September arrival, but insists he won't announce opening day until he's "100% sure of it."
