normal. that is, of course, once you get past a few glaring reminders. a charcoal grill is about as high tech as it gets outside nick's riverside grill. >> we are really basically doing just a simple hamburger. it will be like an outside grill like your barbecue, backyard barbecue. only a little bit nicer and certainly really, really delicious stuff. >> reporter: gregory is one of the owners. >> an enormous amount of work just to get the patios open. never mind the rest of the restaurant. it is even a bigger amount of work. >> reporter: the inside has been gutted. construction is set to start on monday. but outside it is a different story. people packed in for friday happy hour at nick's tony and joes. >> we thought we would be down for the entire summer but we got word it was opened back up. and we came back out to check everything out. >> not as crowded as usual. definitely a little slim choices. only making burgers right now

proud and frankly blessed because she taught us so much more. still, there is this sunday thing and while i admit it is a bit of a relief to ignore all the commercials and not have to search around for just the right gift there is really no substitute for that hug from a woman who just loves you more than you'll ever know. now as many of you have sadly learned mother's day is not the best without mom. still, i figure i am one very lucky man because even though i'm not buying cards or flowers, i have a whole heck of a lot to celebrate. happy mother's day. >> thank you, derek. she would be proud. all right. for the most part it will be okay. some showers in the forecast but not going to be a washout. it will be mild. it will be nice tomorrow morning. >> okay. >> walk for babies. >> walk for babies. >> 9 a.m. about a block away on the green line. start with the satellite picture, radar combined. we have the showers, a couple thunderstorms rolled through.
