Good point, Fred. We've corrected the typo and sincerely regret the error.

YESSSSS! I haven't gone to TJ's since moving from Chi a year ago.

Is there any truth to the rumor that the Keg location is going to become the home of a shooting range? If so that would just be outstanding and a welcome addition to the community.

I heard that the Keg location is going to turn into an anger management facility. Hopefully someone will buy it and keep it a bar.

@Hugh IF the Keg were located in the 8th Ward it probably would have been a bar ( Piano/alternative type place) finance by taxpayers then given to new owner(s)
