      That would be great, but I'm not holding my breath. Why should we trust this announcement any more than the previous five or six? I have lost some of my enthusiasm during this LONG wait.

        faith bro. The story was the money was really tight andthey wanted the new bar area to be fanatastic. It will be worth the wait.

          Not being snarky...but what is the appeal of Cherry St? Is there something they do so great that I should know about?

            Hamburgers, ribs, basic good old fashioned bar type food.

            when it opens go in and checkit out.

            you are not snarky at all, very good question.

            My DH and I haven't lost any enthusiasm for Cherry Street East! We spent every Friday evening there for more than a decade. Our kids grew up on their burgers and fries. We were heartbroken when the place burned down, and contributed to the rebuilding campaign. We considered it our local version of Cheers, and fully expect to do so again.

            The tarp is off. Looks like they're ready to go this weekend for real

            Signs posted in the doors say that they're opening on Monday 4/14. Paying taxes and the re-opening of Cherry St, what a week!
