Andy Gulvezan is Back

 

continued

Even Gulvezan can't keep track. Try to pin him down on a particular year in which he opened or closed any of his many downtown bars and grills, and he bursts out laughing. "I don't remember," he says, which is understandable given the sheer number of turnovers. He does remember when the original Full Moon opened. "1982," he says without hesitation then laughs again and begins to goof around. "I'm going to say March 8th. Do you want the time? 7:04."

As to why he decided to change the Full Moon to the Monkey Bar and back again, Gulvezan, sixty-five, says, "It's a long story. I changed [the name] about three years ago, but things didn't work out. I had a lot of health issues." They were pretty serious health issues, but he is feeling better these days and happy to be back at work tweaking his restaurants.

He's replaced the Monkey Bar's Tex-Mex menu with what he calls "tavern food" and put together a special menu just for the summer months. "It's called my Stimulus Recession Relief Menu," he says. "Nothing is over five dollars." That includes eleven different burgers and a wide selection of salads and sandwiches.
