I read not too long ago that a rum bar called Storm was coming to the former Vinge' location. I've not heard nor seen anything since that time. Does anyone have updates? Im pretty excited for this one :)

    I drive by there almost daily and have seen some construction activity here and there. No indications as to when they'll open though.

      I saw an ad hiring help recently. Want I'm most curious about - Does anyone know who the chef of Storm is?

        According the the Ashevegas Blog :

        "The project is being undertaken by Tom Israel, David LeBoutillier and silent partner Jerry Scheer, all of whom have a considerable amount of restaurant experience under their belts."
