A café set to open in downtown Las Vegas brings with it the namesake of an American hero and a worthy story to tell.
Dougie J’s Café will host a ribbon cutting Dec. 7, National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. The café, created by Suni Chabrow and Jess Marchese, is named in honor of Chabrow's son, Army Spc. Douglas J. Green, who died serving in Afghanistan in 2011 when insurgents attacked his unit with a rocket-propelled grenade.
Also, a flurry of restaurants are on the way at Station Casinos properties, Hash House A Go Go plans to open a Henderson location, and a popular Mirage eatery undergoes a renovation.
Dougie J’s Café
Dougie J’s Café will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. Dec. 7. The ceremony will include Las Vegas City Councilman Bob Coffin, café co-creator Suni Chabrow said.
The café opening on National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day is symbolic, as the shop is named in honor of Chabrow's son, Army Spc. Douglas J. Green, who died serving in Afghanistan in 2011 when insurgents attacked his unit with a rocket-propelled grenade.
In addition to serving its signature gourmet burgers, sandwiches and breakfast food, the café features gallery-worthy art with patriotic themes.
Chabrow runs the Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing comfort and support to service members and their families by crafting care packages and welcome-home events. She also is the creator of the award-winning Whoa! Foods.
Dougie J’s Café is at 603 Las Vegas Blvd. South in downtown Las Vegas.
The café’s hours are expected to be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Chabrow said.
