I told you we have restaurant news. It just keeps coming.
It’s been a little more than a year since customers sat down to eat at Tampico Bay on College Street.
After closing its dine-in operations 14 months ago due to the COVID-19 pandemic, customers are finally dining in again.
The restaurant announced its reopening earlier this month on social media.
“We want to say thank you to our community, friends and our special customers for your wonderful support in this difficult time,” the post reads. “We are ready and proud to serve you in our and your restaurant again. Welcome back.”
Moving to Highway 45, we’ve got a new clothing store near Sonic.
Royal Ink Fashion, 1920 Hwy. 45, opened its doors in mid-April.
Owner, Jessica Hudson switched gears in the midst of the pandemic to open her first clothing store. A former hairdresser, Hudson said the lack of work forced her to get creative.
She added, though her clothing store just opened, she’s no stranger to helping people shop and feel good about themselves.
“When I was doing hair, I was always helping people pick out clothes for special occasions,” Hudson said. “I decided to move forward and bring out my other talents, and that’s making people feel beautiful.”
Be sure to check out Hudson’s store for women’s clothes, shoes, jewelry and more Wednesday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
It’s a perfect weekend to get hitched. Well, to go to the Hitching Lot that is.
