This is such great news. From Caffrey's Tavern Facebook page:

"Mark your calendars! Thursday January 28th is the official date of opening! (Finally!) We can’t wait for everyone to see the new Caffrey’s we have in store for you 
Backyard will be open 11-10 everyday for dine in and takeout - giftcard special is extended to Wednesday 1/27! Grab your $100 giftcards for only $75! Giftcards will work in both locations 
We appreciate your continued support - here’s to a new chapter!" 
The fire was incredibly sad for the community.
Caffrey's opened up their Backyard. The Backyard is behind their building in their parking lot that is an open-air restaurant and bar. Since the pandemic began, the Backyard has been our place to go. We love it. They have tents out back with heaters. I've always felt so safe there. And of course, the delicious food. There have been many times we've called and grabbed curbside, also.
 The grand re-opening is this Thursday January 28th, 2021. Caffrey's appreciates the communities support and they're selling their Caffrey's Hoodies - S-XL $25 and 2XL-3XL $35.
Caffrey's Tavern is always so much fun and the food is excellent. This Thursday, if you are doing take-out, try Caffrey's. If you don't feel safe going inside a restaurant, there's always curbside pick-up. They never disappoint.
This is great news for Caffrey's, so happy to see the tavern open up, again. We've missed you.
