Aric Yeverino, talks with carpenter Ryan Francis during the renovation of his new restaurant called javi's Cooking.
Aric Yeverino, who owns The Dirty Bird Lounge in South Hayward, plans to relocate his now dive bar to a new spot in downtown Hayward, where the old ME Restaurant & Lounge once was. His plan for the estimated 5,000-square-foot space includes a coffee bar, Argentinian restaurant, called Javi's Cooking, and a lounge/bar area. The space is currently an empty shell, but he said that art pieces and some furniture should be moved into the new location by Tuesday. If all goes as planned, the new concept will open by mid-January.
