    Fairmount landmarks Bridgid's and Rembrandt's coming back
    Two Fairmount landmarks are on their way back. Reopening May 16 is Bridgid's at 24th and Meredith Streets, under new owner Jose Vargas. Chris Ryan, who opened it 29 years ago, closed it in February and sold the bricks to a partnership. Vargas says he will maintain the name and the general neighborhood-bar ambiance.
