Briefly: Mory’s may reopen in summer 2010

Mory’s Temple Bar hopes to open by early summer 2010, Mory’s Board of Governors President Christopher Getman ’64 said in an e-mail to members Wednesday. In the e-mail, Getman said the organization needs to raise $400,000 to $500,000 more before the club can reopen. The final cost of the project, including opening costs and “contingent cash reserves,” is about $3.1 million, Getman wrote. According to the e-mail, the club’s contractor has finished the requisite demolition and has begun construction work for the primary modifications to the club, including creating the frame for a new dining alcove. Last Wednesday, Getman said the club has raised about $1.7 million.
