Tom OByrne, owner of Dempseys and Slainte, has taken great pains to present his new project in the old Kurve space as a restaurant with a craft-beer focus, but members of the East Fifth Street Block Association dont like the fact that he wants to stay open till as late as 3:30 a.m., and EV Grieve reports that theyll oppose the project at Mondays community board meeting. Meanwhile, that blog also notices that former Bette GM Byron Bates will be involved in another Monday hopeful the venue thats taking over the Tonda/E.U. space.
