The owners of Solo Sandwich Co. hope to open in April in downtown Longview.
Named for South Longview, Solo will be one heck of a restaurant. Zahck Israel and Chad Nevils also own Ollie’s Skate Shop at 105 W. Tyler St. Nevils and his wife, Laura, own Books & Barrels, a bookstore and wine shop at 206 N. Center St. in downtown Longview. Israel moved his Longview cabinet shop from Eastman Road to 319 E. Cotton St. a few years ago, opening there the same weekend he and Nevils opened Ollie’s skate shop.
Solo Sandwich Co. will be at the southeast corner of Tyler and Green streets. The sandwich shop is around the corner from Cace’s Kitchen and Greenside Beverage Co., in the outdoor patio area of Greenside Beverage Co. to eat or order their sandwiches while at Greenside. The restaurant will have a few tables inside, but he said singles will be able to take their sandwiches to the outdoor patio on Greenside and can order sandwiches there as well.
Update of KPOT
According to Andy Lu, who is bringing the restaurant to Longview.
The restaurant will be located at 2802 Tuttle Boulevard, where Luby’s was previously located.
The restaurant will be open noon-10pm Sunday, 11:30am-10pm Monday-Thursday and 11:30am-11pm Friday and Saturday.
“KPOT is a unique, hands-on dining experience that fuses traditional Asian Hot Pot with the flavors of Korean BBQ – but modernized with a full bar and nightlife-like atmosphere,” the restaurant’s website states.
New resale shop
Twice Loved Marketplace, a new resale shop on McCann Road, supports the nonprofit organization One Love Longview.
“The purpose of this store is to fund One Love,” said Amanda Veasy, volunteer executive director of One Love Longview.
The thrift store is located at 1017 McCann Road, in what was the Sharman Sewing Center in previous years. It is next door to One Love Longview. The organization offers a variety of services to help with mental health and addiction recovery, including counseling and medical services.
The 5,400-square-foot store accepts donations of new and gently used items and is stocked with everything from men’s, women’s and children’s clothing to shoes, toys, home decor and housewares. Furniture donations must be approved in advance.
The sign on the building still says Sharman’s, but Veasy said the new sign is on the way thanks to a donor.
The organization needs volunteers in general and especially to help run the shop. Store hours are 10am-6pm Wednesday-Friday and 10am-4pm Saturday. To volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (903) 932-3451.
