Press 195 celebrates recent renovation with fundraiser


Press 195, a pressed sandwich shop on North Park Avenue, held its official renovation ribbon-cutting celebration on the afternoon of June 15, and continued the party that night.

In April, the casual dining spot added more seating to its bar area, complete with a new happy hour menu, as well as an event space next door.

“It’s exactly what we had before, just a bigger space,” John Annechino, co-owner of Press 195, told the Herald last month. “Good beer, good food, good company and suited for all ages. Whether you want to enjoy a cold beverage or a delicious stuffed knish, we are the place to be.”

The restaurant’s renovation ribbon-cutting ceremony was followed by a fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Hospital in the evening. There were food and drink specials, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the hospital, as well as raffle prizes, live entertainment and kid-friendly activities.
