CERRO GORDO, Ill. (WCIA) — Judy’s Kitchen isn’t the only spot on the downtown strip with construction happening.
That’s because a brand new bar is in the works.
It might not look like much now, but its owners says by the time it’s done, it should be a place where you can come out, enjoy some drinks, listen to music…and have a good time.
It will be called “The Depot,” named after the depot that used to be across the street from it.
It will feature a rustic, industrial theme.
“Most people in the town are pretty excited, I feel like. A lot of good feedback from people. We started a Facebook page, and lots of followers on there so far,” said owner Mark Kaufman.
Kaufman is doing most of the work himself, while juggling a full-time job and caring for a two-year-old.
But, he’s chasing his dream as fast as he can.
His goal is to open the bar sometime in August.
