Sign of the Times: Candlelight getting a facelift

After 55 years, the Candlelight Tavern is getting a facelift. It's starting with the neon sign, which hasn't been refurbished since the days when trolley cars passed by on South Pearl Street. The bar will host a grand-reopening party when the work is done -- but fans of this classic dive needn't worry: The Candlelight will remain open while the work is being done.
