A Day of Sneak Peeks Part 3: Plans for the Virginian.

The Virginian is the long-closed hotel casino located on Virginia Street just north of City Hall and First Street, on the east side of Virginia Street. On the same day I was checking out Ross Apartments and the Shelter, Downtownmakeover fan Matt Orchowski went on a tour of the Virginian, snapped some photos, and learned some surprising facts about the building.

A couple of quick announcements:

1)      The old Beaujolais location 130 West Street has been rented out to a new business called “Crafted Palette”. This will be a high-end specialty coffee shop with light breakfasts’ in addition to a paint and sip venue in the late afternoon and evenings. Like them on Facebook here.

2)      123 W. First Street (Old Bugsy’s Bar Location); one side has been leased  to a business called “Derby Supply Company”.  This will be a 1930’s style barbershop. They are offering cocktails while one might be getting a true straight razor shave and haircut. Look for build-out to begin late Spring, early Summer.

Look for a new project coming to this corner of Stewart and Sinclair, on the border between Downtown, Midtown and the Wells Avenue Conservation district. I don't know much about the project yet, other than it will comprise of the empty lot next to the green Victorian, the space between the green Victorian and the smaller home on Sinclair, and then the small green home on Sinclair as well. It will be residential., and it's not a Marmot project.

Just a quick rumor I heard at Shea's Tavern in Midtown; Midtown Eats will eventually be moving over to Cheney Street to a new building near Death and Taxes. This, I  knew already. This makes sense, since both venues are run by Sadie and Ivan.

Then I heard that Shea's will be taking over Midtown Eat's restaurant space, opening a new restaurant, and the new kitchen wil serve both Shea's and the new restaurant.

This way, Shea's can remain a smoking venue.

Quick blurb: I noticed a new alcohol license on tap for Wednesday's city council meeting for 50 North Sierra Street, Suite 103, which was JB Mapes' former location which has been closed a while. Anyone know what might be going in this space? The business is unnamed in the license application, only that Anthony Kranz is applying for it and it will be a restaurant and bar.

UPDATE: My snoops are telling me Anthony Kranz has two new businesses registered.....Ten & H2O with Bryan Bjork (address at 50 Sierra # 103), and High Desert Pizza and Sports with Sandra Saville.
