Last summer we announced that Bar Centro would be opening in the former home of the Peoples Books Co-Op. And, after months of hard work, the bar will open its doors to the public tonight at 4 p.m., offering a menu of wine, beer, cocktails, small bites and dessert.
Riverwest will soon have a new place to gather. There's a new bar opening at 804 E. Center St. in the former home of the Peoples Books Co-Op. And it could open to the public as soon as October.
Finally, on June 18 -- after almost five years of construction -- Peg Karpfinger and her husband and business partner, Patrick Moore, opened Centro Caf√©, 808 E. Center St. So far, business is booming for the Riverwest Italian eatery.
