At last - Gabe's Tower will re-open! The former Owensboro show place at 19th and Triplett has been closed for years. In this morning's Messenger-Inquirer, Bruce Jones of Professional Hospitality services held a news conference yesterday and announced their plans. It will be a 120 room hotel with a restaurant and bar on the 12th floor. Owensboro Mayor Ron Payne said the city would do whatever it can to help. The project will cost $6 million. Wow, I will believe all this when I see it!! Check here for other memories of Gabe's Tower.
