Several interesting applications this week:

The speedy team of Daniel Roy, Justin Akins and Kenny Hill have already applied to reopen the just-shuttered Guild Public House, this time with a full liquor license, live music and coin-operated games. Let's hope they have better luck than the previous tenant.

Pok Pok's Andy Ricker has filed a permit application for his new restaurant in the former Kappaya space.

Maya Kleber Rose and Daniel Matt have applied to open a tiny (15-seat) beer and wine bar called Lowell at 819 N Russell St.

Brilliant person Guo Zhi Chen has applied to open Kung Food Restaurant in the former Ying Ying building at 8071 N Lombard St.

Roger Bachelor has applied for a brewery license for Lunchbox Brewing in a house at 6711 N Amherst St.

The Cracker Box Tavern, way up there on Northeast Columbia Boulevard, is under new ownership.

Roosters, a strip club also on North Columbia, has applied to add liquor to its current beer lineup.
