WICHITA — After being laid off from the aircraft industry, then returning – "which I swore I'd never do" – and getting laid off again, Steve Martinez decided he needed to make an investment in his own business.
He's opening Beer: 30 in the former Time Out Club at 1544 S. Ida. Martinez plans to open by Saturday.
"I don't want to miss Saint Patrick's Day."
The bar will serve food and have live bands.
So what's Beer: 30 mean?
"When it's Beer: 30, you know it's time to go hang out with friends," Martinez says. "I want it to feel like that – like you're going to your buddy's house."
Besides, he says, "Beer 15: just doesn't have the same ring."
