    Met the Nobel house owners over the weekend while at their namesake in Geneva.
    Cool guys, they plan on opening in mid October in GE.

    Said the permit process was absolutely horrible. I guess GE outsources parts of process and what should take days to approve took several months. Sad.

    Place rocks in Geneva, should be a great addition to DT. Competition with Maize and Main St. Wish people cold find a convenient place to park. It's gonna get worse and keep potential out-of-towner's away from GE. duh

    Not a good formula for attracting new business to GE. I wonder how much cash gets burned waiting on permits.

    Is the Red Hound Doggy place still going to open or is it kaput before it even started? I don't even see a sign saying what it's supposed to be.

    I peered into 2 Hound Red on Sunday and it looks like they are getting closer. Bar appears framed out with ornate wood, mechanicals for the brewery in the back appear in place. Some level of framing in the main restaurant but it looks like they are going with an open rafter design for the ceiling. Who knows. I believe they actually started construction in Spring of 2017. Rumor has been of financial/bank issues that held up work for over 3 months but even with that, this one is taking forever.

    The Facebook page was actually created in March 2017 with the only post stating they are "targeting a Fall of 2017 opening" made in May of 2017

    I started a thread, their original projection was mid-September 2016. I know for a fact the delays were not all GE permit/inspection related. Hope they open soon and good luck to them.

    New thread here: Two Red Hounds

    Went by this evening, there was a help wanted sign in the window, so they must be getting close. I wouldn’t go with mid October, but Thanksgiving looks plausible

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

    Explanation might lie in the fact that the GC is a "Home Improvement" company called One Man, One Project, who seemingly has more than one project, and it could be said, too many projects...

    Comment on their Facebook page two days ago, " dang, how many projects do you having going at the same time??" and their response, "Too many some days." Yep, that helps splain it.

    Video posted on August 25th says 6 weeks or so... (when he says weeks, I think he means months)

    Isn't Christmas still in December? I admit that I have not been paying much attention.

    I know you've been giddy with your new red toy, so let me lay it out for you.

    I don't believe Nobel House will open by December, meaning come November 30, still no Nobel House opening.

    However, they seem to be far enough along that they may be open by December 25.

    Lastly, Mrs. Yoss has been asked to leave you where she found you next time she finds you wandering Wheaton.

    I saw him wandering Wheaton as well. Is this normal or do we have to contact his parents? I would have offered a ride, but I was late to get to-go at Loung-Loi and my wife would have been upset it we shared.

    I noticed that since he started walking the Prairie Path to Wheaton and back, I’ve not heard of anymore assaults from path predators. He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector, a path knight.
