"Eat*Drink*Play," urges the logo of Chances, a new joint that just opened today in the spot at 1135 Bannock Street that had been Wolfie's and, before that, Bambino's.
Make that half of the spot -- the space has been cut back (the other half is a salon), but there's still plenty of real estate outside for a patio.
Inside, the room is dominated by a big bar -- where Cosmos, above, was holding forth on opening day.
The Chances menu features big burgers, salads, sandwiches and paninis, two appetizer pizzas, chile cheese fries and Italian nachos: pepperoni or Italian sausage, olives, mushrooms, onions, Roma tomatoes and mozzarella on cracker chips. But it's the dessert list that gives you a real idea of just how playful Chances can be: The "Sweet Potatoe Sundae" features vanilla ice cream, sweet potato puffs and maple syrup BBQ sauce, "yum."
