The State Journal-Register:
Nov. 14 is the scheduled opening date for Springfieldâ€™s north-end Buffalo Wild Wings Grill & Bar.
â€œWeâ€™re 98 percent done. Weâ€™re finishing the parking lot, hooking up the TVs and firing up the equipment,â€ said owner Doug Cekander. The restaurant is located just north of Big R on North Dirksen Parkway.
â€œOn opening day, we will be offering free wings for a year to the first 100 people in line. It will open at 11 a.m.â€
The Cekander Group of East Peoria is the franchisee of Springfieldâ€™s other Buffalo Wild Wings, 4420 Wabash Ave., plus seven others in central Illinois.
The new place will look similar to the Wabash store, but will sport a more modern look. There will be 40 to 50 televisions and interactive trivia.
Cekander said construction went as planned.
