When it comes to meeting new people, do you step outside your comfort zone? Or do you tend to stick with what’s comfortable and familiar? Does the thought of having a conversation with a total stranger excite you or cause anxiety?
For Andy Gould and Mandy Tandy — the brains and heart behind now-shuttered Bonny’s — Slippery Slope is a second go at creating a dive bar / dance club presence in Logan Square. As partners at Scofflaw, they’re bringing some of their culinary family along to help: Danny Shapiro (Scofflaw, The Whistler) and Kris Nagy (Scofflaw, Simone’s) will continue as partners and Joe Darling (Bonny’s, Scofflaw, Au Cheval, Gilt Bar) will come on as general manager. Doors officially open at 8 p.m. tonight — and here, Darling gives us a sneak peek inside.
