What's Happening in:  Graduate Hospital 

Fitzwater Street Bagels set to open on Friday in Graduate Hospital

The corner of 20th and Fitzwater has been bad luck for small businesses in recent years. Once Beauty Shop Cafe closed after years in the spot, businesses would pop up in the location, but only for short spans of time. Among the recent tenants are the Gold Standard and The Little Cafe.

Over the summer we told you about the owner of Loco Pez taking over the former Twi-Lite Lounge location at 20th and Bainbridge. At that time, the concept and plans for the space were relatively unclear, other than the news of it becoming a restaurant.
