The new Joe Squared at Power Plant Live is set to open for business Wednesday at 5 p.m.
The new location for the pizzeria has been in the works since May, when it was announced that it would replace Two Boots, which was near the end of its lease. The addition was part of the complex's $10 million renovation, which also includes the new Leinenkugel's Beer Garden. The restaurant, bar and live music venue will keep its original Station North location.
Owner Joe Edwardsen said Tuesday the menu is almost done for Wednesday's soft opening. In addition to the menu at the old Joe Squared, it will include a six-inch personal square pizza and 16 drafts on tap.
The sign, pictured above, went up late last week.
The new Joe Squared, like the original location, will continue hosting live musicians. Starting this week, the plan is to have live music every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Their stage is small: it's limited to only three performers.
The talent bookers are looking for pitches to fill out the calendar starting in October. They're looking for "Bluegrass, Folk, Americana, Rock, Some Covers, Acoustic, Upbeat/lively Jazz, Singer Songwriter, Acoustic," they wrote in an e-mail.
