    Let’s just call it ‘The Heights’

    I’m guilty of calling it GV. I call German Village, German Village

    Sounds like the 5th Avenue old Hoggy’s will become a Winking Lizard….not sure if this has already been mentioned…

    Very nice, if true. It should fit in very well within the Grandview Ave. corridor.

    It will do great. Was with some friends at Byrnes and had to park a couple of blocks over, it was really not an issue at all and a nice walk in a nice area is always welcome. I think Winking Lizard will be a good fit.

    The pig has flown. The lizard is stepping in.

    Winking Lizard Inc. is the latest tenant to step into a space vacated by Hoggy’s when it went into receivership this year. The Bedford Heights-based chain plans to open a Winking Lizard Bar & Grill in the former barbecue joint at 1416 W. Fifth Ave. near Grandview Heights.

    Winking Lizard has above average bar food, good/great beer selection, plenty of TV’s, and a good amount of daily/nightly specials.

    Sundays are a pizza and wings for only $13-$14. Perfect for some NFL gameday action.

    It appears that the Dublin Hoggy’s location (Sawmill and Hard Rd), is being replaced by 101 Beer Kitchen (or something similar). Construction is underway now.

    I live close to there, and used to go to that Hoggy’s. Never heard of 101.

    Got the name from one of the neighbors, so not sure how accurate it is. Some details here…

    On another note, since you’re local, sounds like the old Kroger across the street is finally coming down for a Walmart or other big box/grocery and a smaller anchor. Plans appear to be for demolition from Kroger to (and including) Westshore Pizza. The rest from Amul India down would be refurbed. Look for some action as early as September, all subject to change of course.
