Restaurant notes: Sticks & Stones sets opening

Said it here before, but...

South Philly's two longest-delayed projects may finally see the light of day.

  • Nick Miglino says Sticks & Stones, his pub at 1909 E. Passyunk Ave., will give away food and beverages on one of the busiest drinking nights of the year -- Thanksgiving eve (11/24). It will soft-open Friday (11/26) and Saturday (11/27) at 5 p.m., and host an industry night starting at 7 p.m. Sunday (11/28). Miglino has Eric "Elvis" Walsh running the bar. The delay? Family issues, says Miglino.
  • Opening is not quite at hand for 943, the Argentinean-Italian BYOB from Pat Cancelliere at 943 S. Ninth St. Though the place looks finished, Cancelliere  says he must wait for PGW to install a new meter. Then come city inspections. Up by Christmas, he says. I believe he means Christmas 2010.
