Even more news on the Cru closing


How can you benefit on the Cru Café & Wine Bar closing that was exclusively reported on 312DD?!

We just found out that owner Debbie Sharpe is selling off most of the merchandise on Jan. 25, the day after it closes until it transforms into Feast Gold Coast. She's selling off some of the higher-end wines, furniture, chandeliers and coffee tables. That'll happen 9am-noon.

Sharpe also has plans to open two additional Goddess and Grocer shops. One (with yet another Feast Restaurant + Bar) expands into Lincoln Square at 4743 N. Lincoln Ave. in June. And the former Solomon's Cookies at 2222 N. Elston Ave. will become the fourth location.

The original Feast is in Bucktown.
