Thanks for reporting on this. I live nearby and have been watching Howard starting to evolve. I know there are Evanston residents that oppose the use of Evanston tax revenue for another project like this, but I think this could be really good for the neighbirhood. Looking forward to hearing more.

This is totes exciting! Howard needs businesses that attract people to the area. I diggin' the idea of a brew pub that uses organic grain mashes, too. Maybe they will.

Hats off to Evanston and Alderman Rainey for their very proactive (with a plan) approach to business development along their side of Howard Street. I'm betting you won't see any fast food joints coming in as part of their plans!

Aaaargh. Any place what serves up fine rum and good wenches be to my liking it be.

Hats off to "mcl" for being the ants at the picnic.

Happy for Howard St and all, but gov-funded booze joints seem like a little overboard, even to this RP lefty.

Gov-funded booze tastes just as good to me as the other stuff. I got no problem with it.

Davey said...

Well, it sure beats not having any at all.

I think Evanston is just makin' up for all the dry years of old when they was a dang dry city. Poor fools never knew the good bite of a nice gosh dang scotch.

Yes Evanston is making up for lost time, they finally discovered the money to be made off of alcohol.

The downtown is finally waking up too!
World of Beer just opened up downtown at Fountain Square and they are finally getting some decent restaurants.
