Just before Thanksgiving in downtown Elgin, a bar that is supposed to be open is clearly not.
There is a crinkled yellow poster pasted on the exterior of the building that reads “COMING SOON.” The glass doors and windows are blacked out with hanging plastic. One of those ubiquitous “CLOSED PLEASE CALL AGAIN” signs with a clock on it hangs at the entrance. With delays that have stretched past weeks and into months, the clock may as well lose its hands.
