The Theodore is named for 26th president and ultimate outdoorsman Teddy Roosevelt — who also happens to be the street's namesake.
“We plan on drawing a lot of inspiration from Theodore in the build-out,” owner Justin Evans says.
He will be operating The Theodore along with Tony Fatica and Ryan Kemmet. Evans also owns The Wandering Tortoise and Hops On Birch in Flagstaff, as well as The Sleepy Whale, which opened on May 2. Yeah, only about four weeks ago.
And much like the other establishments, The Theodore will keep the beer list tight. It'll continue to source the best product with a big focus on the retail selection — as Evans puts it.
Another trending trait, The Theodore will be BYOF, or bring your own food.
“We are fortunate to have a lot of awesome local food spots around us — especially the chicken sandwich from Wilderness,” Evans says, referring to the also recently opened downtown Phoenix location of Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co., and its AZ Hot Fried Chicken Sandwich.
One last fun thing. This team will be promoting The Theodore's opening like a political campaign, using logos from Saywells Design in Tucson — and just in time for 2020.
