It's a good thing I go to the movies as often as I do, or I might not have even realized this.

For the last few months, there's been a big sign hanging over the location right across the street from the AMC Dine-In theater next to the Southgate Mall which read "COMING SOON - DRAM SHOP." We got word a while back that the Dram Shop was getting ready to expand and open a second location at the spot, but we hadn't heard much about it since.

So when I went to the movies this past weekend (sidenote: the new Child's Play was pretty good!), I was surprised to see a sign next to the COMING SOON sign which read "NOW OPEN." The door was open and there were definitely people inside. Apparently they had been getting prepared for the opening over the past few weeks, but now it's officially here, operating under the same schedule as their downtown location.

Have you checked out the new Dram Shop location over on Brooks Street? Will you be there if you haven't yet?
