It’s time to break your cabin fever and Follow Me on Friday to a cozy European-style coffee and wine bar: Towbar, located at 1500 W. Jarvis (Jarvis and Greenview). It’s been getting rave reviews ever since it opened last spring in the heart of the Jarvis Square business district.
Find out what everyone’s been talking about and join me this Friday, January 10th, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. for a free drink and some complimentary appetizers.
Owned by Debbie and Jamie Evans and business partner Sandra Carter, who also owns Taste Food and Wine just two storefronts away, Towbar is a great place to enjoy a weekend brunch or a spread of tasty plates like charcuterie, cheeses and olives. More substantial options are also available, including hot soup, sandwiches, salads, and two daily dinner entrees in the evening.
Towbar just received its liquor license. So in addition to a complete menu, Towbar now boasts a full bar with a compliment of fine wine, craft beers, spirits and cocktails. And after your visit, stop by Taste Food and Wine for a complimentary wine tasting from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
