    CAPTAIN CLAMATO!

    His superpowers include:

    Stopping the world from bad restaurants.
    A relentless passion to save bicycle races
    An unwavered love to volunteer to make his community stronger.
    A wit that would slay any sarcastic passer-by

    His supersuit? A collection of everyman clothes. He blends into a crowd and is always at the right place at the right time to save the day.

    Captain Clamato - Purveyor of truth, humor and honesty.

    Agree.

    Are you suggesting a Go Fund Me page?

    And "His supersuit? A collection of everyman clothes. He blends into a crowd..." — have you seen his sneakers?

    Is Clamato doing all that himself, or might there be more than one of him?

    He has inspired copy cats.

    Back to Nobel House-On October 4, they posted on their Facebook page they are "Coming Soon". I was really hoping they would be open by the November 23 holiday walk, but that doesn't look possible

    "...Probably the next month or so we are gonna git her opened up..." — September 17, 2018, One Man, One Project

    With a General Contractor named One Man, One Project, patience is required

    Seems they are opening on “or so”

    Hard to get a "read" on progress by peering in window, but chairs and tables in, only visual construction need is the reception podium that is only metal studs at moment. Not sure of progress in back end (kitchen/bathrooms), but the dining/bar area is 98%. Not sure where they are at with hiring either. Not a single worker there today.

    I visited the Geneva location today. They said they are very close to opening the GE location. The restaurant is fully ready to go (i.e. kitchen, bar, etc) but they are waiting on final inspections, etc. Hope to open before Christmas but would be first of the year at latest. Apparently our Village is not "efficient" to work with on commercial properties serving food.

    From their Facebook page, it looks like Nobel House will open mid-January

    I trust this board to prove me right (or wrong, as the case may be). Where is the accent? On the "bel" as in "No Bell" or on the "No" as is "Know bull"?

    I recall Alfed Nobel as the inspiration (and on the awning) so the accent must be on the "bel;" however, every person I've spoken with about the excitement of our newest dining establishments has put the accent on the "No," so perhaps I'm the weirdo...

    And despite what my wife might say, I am fun at parties!

    I’ve always pronounced it No Bell, not sure that helps
