A bit more checking - and a tip from Tucson Weekly contributor Eric "Swede" Swedlund - has shed a bit more light on what's going into several spaces in the vicinity of 300 E. Congress St., where those science exhibits have been held for the past year or two.
Liquor license applications have now been filed for three different establishments in that area. A place called Proper is apparently going in at 300 E. Congress. Another place called Diablo Burger is going in at 312 E. Congress St. and a bar called Good Oak Bar is slated for the space at 316 E. Congress St.
Ummm ... wow? Three new places in addition to Lulu's Shake Shoppe, which opens in mid-October, and the new restaurant Saint House that's going in where Sharks Bar used to be. Vaudeville Cabaret is also being converted into a new bar and live-music venue called Voodoo Jack's and let us not forget about the new bar JunXion and the yet-to-be-named restaurant at 50 E. Broadway Blvd. also opening in the area.
