Bars in the news; The Stop aims to be local bar-and-grill detour

The Stop aims to be local bar-and-grill detour

Marvin Meadows and Angela Alwardt already have two bar-and-grills, and they've come up with a road-tested concept to get people to stop at their third.

Meadows, who owns the It'll Do bar in Arcola and It'll Do 2 in Champaign's Country Fair Shopping Center, recently acquired the former Club 45 property at 3515 N. Cunningham Ave., U.

He hopes to put in a bar-and-grill similar to his other two businesses, but with a twist.

"It'll have a construction theme," said Meadows, who once worked in road construction. "It'll have a sign shaped like a stop sign, and it will be decorated with 'stop' and 'go' paddles and road construction signs."

Meadows said the waitresses will wear denim shorts with suspenders and work boots, and signs on their shirts that say "slippery when wet" and "caution – bumps ahead."
Slippery when wet? Caution- bumps ahead?

Stay Classy San Diego
