Many folks in the Bernal neighborhood have been wondering about the fate of ~SKIP’S TAVERN~, which is under new ownership. The new incarnation is The Lucky Horseshoe, and the plan is to open this Wednesday June 29th. Sounds like the owner is doing what she can to secure an entertainment license, and keep the bar’s live music tradition alive. In the meantime, you’ll be able to watch the Giants game on their 55-inch screen. You can read all about the bar in this piece by the fine folks over at Bernalwood. 425 Cortland Ave. at Andover.
