Hertel family tavern Nortel Grill closing

The Nortel Grill plans to close on Sept. 30.

There will be a farewell party Sept. 25, according to the tavern's Facebook page.

"We will be having a going away party for our valued customers and close friends," it says. "Please stop by and wish Barb well in her retirement."

Here's what Jana Eisenberg wrote after she dropped in a decade ago:

"The Strzyz family founded the Nortel (so named for being on the corner of Norris and Hertel, of course) many, many years ago.  ... The current owner, Barbara Strzyz, literally grew up in this building. Though she doesn't live here anymore, she always comes to close up."
