It looks like Sloopers won't have much longer to wait for Villains' long-gestating new location to open, as licenses were issued on March 12. No official word has come from representatives yet and there's no telling if chef Dennis Stover is still in the picture, having come on board well over a year ago.
As a reminder, Villain's abruptly closed and apparently lost their lease at 649 S. Clark way back in 2012. They subsequently announced their return to South Clark in 2013 and officially began their build out in 2014.
Hopefully this means they'll be opening soon!
