We did their Stockyard Supper last week. Great French dinner, Leeks w/ soft boiled egg, Coq au vin and puff pastry for 25 bucks. All well done and kick ass cocktails for a breakfast joint. The space at night is quite nice.

why don't they just open for dinner, say, one night a week on a regular basis?

Was hoping this might happen when he sold Happy Gillis. As it is, Stockyard Supper is once a month and I think they might be open First Fridays for a happy hour.

From their FB page today:

"Don't forget, we now stay open until about 8:30 on Friday nights for small plates and beverages."

Is this the same place that's in the old gas station diagonal to Kemper Arena?

Closing apparently. A bummer as they have been pretty solid for a long time.

Always wished they had kept regular evening hours, but suppose that was a lifestyle choice for the owners.

Whiskey and Donuts was a great event!

I was at that Whiskey and Donut event - it was great!

This seemed inevitable after the sale of Happy Gillis and then demise of Speak. It's a shame, but hopefully something will jump in there.

*fixed mistake of saying "demise" of happy gillis - don't want people not going there!

There was no demise of Happy Gillis, they just sold it. But I agree it is a bummer, especially with so much happening in that vicinity – new apartments across the street, Kemper Arena re-use, Golden Ox. I will miss them.

Third launch is a charm? Doesn't exactly inspire confidence.
