Speaking of new incarnations of old favorites: a sign on the doors of Josie’s, in the former home of Joe’s, says “opening soon,” and its owners told The Local today to expect a debut in about two weeks. The bar on Sixth Street near Avenue B, which the owners of Mona’s had hoped would open mid-July, is still undergoing extensive renovations, but partner Fred Brown said that replicas of the bar’s old red-and-black floor tiles and patterned wallpaper are on their way. A spokesperson for the State Liquor Authority said the full liquor license has been conditionally approved pending completion of construction and paperwork.
