Bruno's Fate?

Est 1956.

Kona Brewing Co.


              The only building that Loyola doesn't own on Sheridan by the Loyola L stop. Bruno's is a classic liquor store slash bar, not too many of these left in the city and it would be a shame to lose this one. The building does have beautiful terracotta. Did someone previously post as to the origin of the Maher advertising that was revealed after the other commercial buildings were torn down? Holdouts sometimes are the most interesting because they are the only unique feature left on an otherwise bland dull block. Lets hope that Bruno's is stubborn enough to not sell and remains in place. A beautiful building and an interesting part of Chicago history deserves to stay in business if it wants to.

Had a food delivery to Bruno yesterday from Grill Inn. He's staying put.

Good to hear it Craig!
What is your furthest delivery been?

Craig Gernhardt said...

Dempster and Chicago in Evanston to the north and Broadway and Foster to the south.

That's a decent size delivery area, good exercise too.

Used to do pizza delivery, that was fun.
