Heroes in Old Town has been closed since Sunday while workers pound away on a half-million dollar remodel. New manager Jason Fisher had hoped to be ready to re-open this afternoon, but things got behind, as they tend to do.
If all goes well, though, he’ll be ready to open at lunchtime on Friday. When customers re-enter, they’ll find a new-and-improved Heroes, complete with a carpet-free concrete floor (better for sloshed beer absorption), new standup drink bars and brand-new booths and bar stools.
A new, expanded patio should be ready to go by Cinco De Mayo (May 5), and Fisher and Co. also are working on adding 19 new items to the menu, including bierocks, enchiladas, salmon and several new salads.
I’m going to inspect the new menu sometime in the next couple of weeks, and I’ll report back. All I can say is that Fisher BETTER leave my buffalo chicken pizza right where it is.
I’m kidding. Kind of.
