Despite "Coming Soon" on the marquee, Evie's Tavern & Grill is now open at 3561 53rd Ave. W, in Bradenton.
The bar and grill opened Thursday for business and throughout opening weekend is offering 25 percent off of food. If you can't make it out opening weekend, Evie's offers 50-cent jumbo wings on Tuesdays, $8 18-inch pizza on Wednesdays and $5 burgers on Thursdays.
Owner Michael Evanoff told me in August that he's gearing the bar and grill toward staff at area businesses and the college students at SCF and IMG Academy:
"We're focusing on more of a family atmosphere, trying to get people from IMG, the high school and college to come to this location," Evanoff told the Herald.

You'll find sandwiches, burgers, wraps and pizza on the menu, a couple pool tables and plenty of screens to catch the game. The full-service liquor bar features 19 taps with a rotation of craft brews. One relatively uncommon brew spotted on tap Friday is Duke's Cold Nose Brown Ale by Bold City Brewery in Jacksonville.
Evie's will be open from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sundays-Tuesdays and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Wednesdays-Saturdays, he said. The popular happy hour from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. also will come to the Bradenton location featuring $2 Bud and Bud Light bottles. The location also offers take-out orders through a separate entrance.
The original Evie's started in 1997 on Bee Ridge Road with a golf driving range, expanding to a car wash, mini-golf course and more. This will mark Evie's seventh location and the third in Manatee County. Other Manatee Evie's includes Evie's Pizzeria on University, 5897 Whitfield Ave., and Evie's Tavern in Ellenton, 5955 Factory Shops Blvd., near the Ellenton Premium Outlets.
And to put a longstanding mispronunciation to rest by some, it's Evv-vie's and not Eee-vie's, thanks to the owner's last name Evanoff. Count me among the guilty.
