Get ready for an upgrade!

Back on May 28th, we got word that Shuey's Restaurant & Lounge at 1158 Club Road NE in Cedar Rapids had suffered "substantial damage" because of an early morning fire. We don't know the full extent of the damage, but we do know that it was enough for the folks behind the restaurant to totally demolish the building and start fresh. The building was torn down on July 12th, and a post on the business's Facebook page read:

"Sad to see the place that holds a lot of memories torn down, but we are also happy for what is next to come. #wewillbeback #welovethistown"

Just yesterday (July 26th), we got another update from Shuey's on Facebook, and this one shared very GOOD news. The restaurant is rebuilding and will be better than ever! The post shows a rendering of a brand new Shuey's, courtesy of Aspect Architecture :Design. Here's a sneak peek look at what the exterior of the building will look like, fenced-in patio included:

As of right now, there's no word on when the new Shuey's will be complete, but you can follow along with updates from the business' Facebook page HERE. We can't wait to check it out when it's done!

We also got word this week of a brand new eatery in Center Point called Parlor on Main. The shop is located at 433 E Main Street and will serve a variety of ice cream treats, as well as some other foods like smash burgers and chili dogs. They hope to open in mid-August.
