Lots of ac­tiv­ity in Foothills; cou­ple of fit­ness busi­nesses open

Yuma Sun - - BUSINESS -

Sev­eral read­ers have been ask­ing about the ac­tiv­ity at the old Par­rish’s Bar and Grill and want to know when the restau­rant will re­open. I now have the an­swer.

It will be open­ing in about a month or so, how­ever, it will be as a whole new restau­rant. Sis­ters Maria Ste­fanakos, He­lene Ste­fanakos and Loula Ste­fanakos have taken over the space and will be open­ing Wheezy’s Restau­rant and Sports Bar, 11732 S. For­tuna Road, in about a month.

Maria said that her sis­ter Loula brought back some good ideas from Den­ver, Colo., and the new restau­rant and sports bar will have an “in­dus­tri­al­type ‘70s vin­tage sports feel.”

The Ste­fanakos sis­ters will con­tinue to op­er­ate their other restau­rant, Foothills Eatery, 12871 S. Frontage Road. They bought the prop­erty last year.

Stu­dio 102, a his­toric 1920s venue “with a modern in­dus­trial chic look,” spe­cial­izes in host­ing, plan­ning, dec­o­rat­ing and “mak­ing your dream event come true.” They can host any event: wed­dings, com­pany par­ties, bridal and baby show­ers, chil­dren’s themed birth­day par­ties, fam­ily re­unions, etc.

The venue also of­fers com­plete event plan­ning, decor and flo­ral de­sign, stu­dio and lo­ca­tion pho-
