Well it's been awhile since we've had our infamous "Rumors Around the Sloop" posts and we've had an uptick in emails, observations and discussions about random things in the neighborhood. As a result, expect some posts this week about rumors in the South Loop.
Today, we're going to start with a partial validation of a recent rumor we heard of back in December revolving around the building at 1150 S. Wabash (just North of Bongo Room). Back then we heard that the owners of Artists Cafe (412 S. Michigan) were behind the renovations at this building. While this was simply a rumor in December it appears to be true based on some of the renovations on the exterior of the building:
It's might be hard to see in the picture above, but carved into the stone says, "George and Angela Mitchell Building". So it appears that they have something to do with the renovations. However, what is still the big question? Will this be a dinner similar to the Artists Cafe? Or will it be something else?
Anyone heard anything about this?
