Yesterday morning, Vic Christopher and Heather Levine exploded all the local news outlets with the news that they are expanding their exceedingly successful wine bar. It’s so successful that many people want to rent the space for parties or private functions, but there’s no way to do so without interrupting the entire flow of the current operation. On a busy weekend night, the single unisex bathroom doesn’t help either.
So, onto the next. Vic and Heather have already bought the property at 207 Broadway. Luckily for them, the back connects to the back of the current space, at 12 Second Street. This will make for a second entrance, an outdoor patio, and another, separate room for private functions. In addition to that, they’ve now storefronts facing Broadway. Vic imagines a little grocery going in, with maybe a smaller cafÃ© version of the Confectionery operating a few days a week. But in his words, “I’m not a planner, I’m a do-er”, so we’ll see what it is when it opens. Nice little gift for the people Troy.
I stopped by earlier today and took a few photos to give you an idea of the scope of this project. Before looking at the photos, remember that all the others who have seen this building were interestsed in turning it into a parking lot.
