Saluting Sophie’s

Eater has a beer at Sophie’s, the East Fifth Street watering hole, and shares some trivia about the previous occupant: “Before Sophie moved in, the space was called the Chic Choc, owned by Virginia Chicarelli and a person named Chocolate. You can still see the words ‘Chic Choc’ (in my opinion, one of the worst bar names ever) on the cement threshold of Sophie’s.”
