Yes, Sophie's is reopening today

There has been activity in recent days at Sophie's, the bar that someone once started a blog about here at 507 E. Fifth St. between Avenue A and Avenue B. 

This photo from yesterday shows a beer delivery ahead of its reopening this afternoon. 

Sophie's along with its sister bars Josie's on Sixth Street and Mona's on Avenue B return after closing in December when Gov. Cuomo did away with indoor dining at bars and restaurants. (Indoor capacity in NYC is at 50 percent as of today.) 

There was never any doubt that these neighborhood bars would reopen at some point. 

Still, there were some freakout moments in recent weeks ... like when Google temporarily listed Sophie's as "permanently closed" ... 😱🤯

Saw dividers being set up inside Josie's yesterday. I'll probably be waiting for my shots before going back inside for my beers but I can't wait to be back by the juke box
