The long-awaited re-opening of Manuel's Tavern is taking place tonight, Saturday, August 6. 

Adding significance to the event is that Saturday is also the 60th anniversary of the initial grand opening in 1956.

Doors open at 6:00pm Saturday, August 6 and there will be some organized celebrations and a little fanfare starting around 8:00pm. 

Brian Maloof, Manuel's son will say a few words about the renovation and do a toast in honor of the tavern's renovation and 60th birthday.  The Marching Abominables, that slightly strange but delightful and colorful neighborhood band, will march and play through the newly renovated tavern.

They may even have some cake!
