Downtown Illinois’ Santa Speakeasy Opens for ‘Encore’ During This Week’s Snowstorm
Grab your snow pants and start shoveling a path so you can stop by 'encore' this Friday night.
We've been hearing a lot about this week's weather. We're expected to get an epic snowstorm leading into the holiday weekend, with businesses announcing they're closing early Thursday and not even opening on Friday.
Except one business, that's doing just the opposite.
I don't usually consider myself a reporter, but if I was, this would be my 'beat.' The Christmas pop-up bar breakdown.
Honestly that's the only kind of 'beat' I would apply for.
In that case, 'reporting LIVE for 97ZOK, I'm Michelle Abraham with this exclusive information... that I got on Facebook, so we'll call it semi-exclusive... Social Urban Bar & Restaurant is opening again this Friday night!'
In case you missed it somehow, last weekend in Rockford, Social opened up for the first time in two years.
We expected it to be a big deal and it was with the decorations from BW Event & Decor impressing everyone who walked in.
Santas filled the bar and triggered a response from the owner, Paul Sletten, who told us just yesterday that 'we look forward to seeing you more...'
Now we know 'more' begins this Friday, December 23 at 7pm.
I know you're thinking, Michelle... THERE'S A STORM COMING!
Yeah, you're right but I mean you have boots right? You have a coat? Maybe three scarves? Can you walk to Social? Or call an experienced designated driver to drop you off?
For real though, bundle up, the high Friday is one big degree, but that's why 'encore,' the Friday night party is inside with cocktails.
Will you stop by?
