|1500 W Jarvis Chicago, Illinois|
Towbar's spokeswoman was seen leaving the premises this evening. This writer asked her when she expected to open, she responded that she didn't want to give a definite date because there were still many loose ends to tie up and waiting for permits. She said she expected to open in about two weeks. A curious young couple came by and were surprised to see the changes at the former location of Charmers and they wondered aloud about when this big change had occurred and what Towbar was going to be. Chevanston filled them in briefly.
DNAinfo.com did a write up on the soon to open Coffee/Wine Bar on May 3rd and Benjamin couldn't pin them down on an opening date either, at that time it was anywhere from 2 weeks to 10 days. "All of our places are warm and welcoming," said Debbie Evans, inside the soon-to-open Towbar at 1506 N. Jarvis Ave." (Pretty sure that Mr Woodard meant 1500 w Jarvis). "Eight years ago, they (Evans Family) opened the Celtic Knot in Evanston, which has since been sold. And they now plan to open a microbrewery, called the Peckish Pig, in October (Eater says winter) on the Evanston side of Howard Street."
