A couple of popular Rockford restaurant bars closed down suddenly last week.

Vintage@501, 501 East State Street and Blue Line, 211 Elm Street Suite 201, both shuttered last Friday.

Vintage@501 on Facebook:

In light of recent events in the downtown community, we have decided to close our Vintage and Blue Line locations until further notice.

That post went up on Friday, potentially due to a positive test at nearby Prairie Street Brewing Company which also forced them to close.

However, just yesterday, again on Facebook, Vintage@501 announced they would be reopening both Vintage and Blue Line locations saying "thank you all again for your understanding and support and we hope to see you back this weekend."

Both Blue Line and Vintage are open Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

If you haven't been to Vintage for their Million Dollar Bacon you are sorely missing it out. With a menu loaded with incredible things, the bacon appetizer is truly amazing.
