Demolition crews bring down the former Snookies building.
A long-time landmark on the Washington waterfront is set for demolition. The property where Snookie's Oyster Bar is located has long been a landmark for people in the Beaufort County community and those just passing the Washington waterfront. Before it was an oyster bar, some may remember the property as Mel's Diner. Big plans are in store for the piece of land which is scheduled for demolition this Friday. Over a dozen luxury, waterfront condos are planned. St. Clair, who is performing the demolition, says it should take about an hour. He estimates about 50 loads of debris will be trucked away from the site.
