John Tasiopoulos just can’t help himself.
The Wilmette resident’s lack of will power is the foundation for most of his ventures, including his newest, 27 Live in Evanston.
“I’ve always been a dreamer,” Tasiopoulos said. “It drives my wife crazy, but it works for me.”
For a long time, Tasiopoulos was a suit, but the corporate life wore on him.
A handful of years ago, he opened Old Neighborhood Grill, 2902 Central Ave., on Evanston’s north side. A year and a half ago, Tasiopoulos’ impatience got the best of him again — with a little help from a friend.
