The Wicker Park location of Pittsburgh-style via Wrigleyville bar and sandwich spot Lucky's Sandwich Co. is hoping for a January 1 opening, according to owner Joe DeRosa. A soft opening is tentatively scheduled for December 28, with a grand opening in mid-January.
While sticking with "exactly the same" menu, the new location is 2200 square feet, a.k.a. four times the size of the Clark Street location and twice the Maxwell Street Lucky's. Inside there will be a dart board, shuffleboard, a chalkboard running the length of the space, and they're trying for Lucky's Trolley. "We're going for a little more of a fun atmosphere," DeRosa says. Hence the train and sandwich-eating challenges.
