February 26, 2008 The restaurant posts an ad on Craigslist seeking staff.

October 27, 2008 Another Craigslist hiring post. Talk begins to spread of an “imminent” opening.

February 2, 2009 Word comes via Chowhound that C.F. Donovan’s is all staffed up and ready to go.

April 1, 2009 Let’s all say it together: another Craigslist hiring post. This one promises an opening “VERY soon.”
