We used to call that place Aids Bandaid Burger because it looked so sketchy. But their food is great.

Looks like I know where we will be going for pre-surprise drinks on Saturday. We really should have done more. I know that building was recently purchased and part of the plans are to put in a "rooftop" swimming pool. I would bet that is why it's closing.


* Sassafras, a dive bar from the bartenders of  Big Star Bar and Grand Prize Bar, opened Wednesday at 5022 Pinemont Dr. The bar which also serves craft beers and wine, was last occupied by The Brew House and before that Crazy J's.
