As anyone who's ever been strangled by their own transplanted dead-guy hand can tell you, seamlessly blending old and new ain't easy. Actually, those people can't tell you that, as they foolishly chose to attach a murderer's arm to their body and it killed them. But that just means more delicious bar food for you at The Point, which kept the brick structure of its 1846 pre-Fire digs intact, but updated it with hand-blown globe light fixtures, five well-placed HDs, and massive black 'n white artwork including a three-panel portrait of Marilyn Monroe, as some like it hot, but others like it kind of chubby but hot for the '50s.
