Eureka!, a California-based chain of upscale burger joints, is slated to open in October in the former Aspen Leaf Frozen Yogurt spot, at 800 W. Idaho St, in the Mode Building.

Located next to Pie Hole, Eureka! will specialize in so-hip-it-hurts burgers, craft brews and small-batch bourbon whiskeys. The restaurant and bar should be open by the middle of October.
