We've been getting a ton of inquiries about when The Scout (1301 S. Wabash) is going to open and yesterday a commenter noticed that the RedEye said it was going to open on Monday, August 1st.
After talking to a source, it sounds like they won't be open on that Monday but are shooting to open on Tuesday, August 2nd. That is if everything goes according to plan.
Metromix (who is owned by Tribune, who also owns RedEye) seems to have a more accurate account on the opening of the Scout. On their website it says early August as well.
So it sounds like it will be soon...and judging by all the people we see peeking inside it seems like everyone is excited to see this place open.
