Spoke & Bird Shooting for Mid-August Opening

In case you missed it, DNA info had a good update on a story we posted about back in April:
Cafe Society will reopen July 1 under new ownership, then briefly close and reopen as The Spoke & Bird in mid-August. 
The name is a nod to the couple's shared passion for biking, which they hope will in part define the vibe at the new health-focused eatery. 
Part of their vision for the new restaurant includes transforming the new outdoor patio that abuts the Women's Park and Gardens into a 100-seat lounge that serves beer and wine. Last week, the duo scored a liquor license to do just that, Golas said.
They go onto to talk about the great patio, which is truly the best asset for the space.  We also like the story behind the name and the fact that they're hoping to incorporate the "biking vibe" into the restaurant.

In regard to changes to the menu:
Golas said The Spoke & Bird will start with breakfast and lunch , working off a scaled-back menu that emphasizes paninis and sandwiches made with local produce, and a crepe-heavy morning lineup.

The team plans to change the menu every two weeks in order to serve fresh ingredients in season. In October — if there's sufficient demand — Golas said they planned to add dinner and keep the patio open later.
All we're going to say is hopefully they don't get rid of one of our Sloopin favorites - the Spinach and Guac Wrap!
