WOOD RIVER – Charlie’s Drive-In, at 762 N. Wood River Ave., in Wood River, will have a grand reopening on Wednesday, May 4.
A traditional root beer stand, Charlie’s Drive-In was built around 1950. It went through a series of owners and names until the late Charlie Tweedy bought it in 1976. He operated the stand until 1992 , at which time he sold it to his daughter, Teresa Tweedy and Michelle Garin. It closed in August 2021.
