Retailers schedule block party
Midtown retailers Stash, Waffle Champion and Dry/Shop Blow-Dry Bar and Boutique will host a block party from 6 to 9 p.m. March 28 in and around the Midtown Plaza Court building at NW 10th and Walker Avenue. The event will feature sales, door prizes and music and has been planned in conjunction with the opening night of the 2014 season of the H&8th Night Market. “We wanted to create an atmosphere that afforded people the opportunity to explore the food trucks and music at H&8th as well as the fresh new businesses just two blocks away near the Midtown Plaza Court,” said Della Patterson, co-owner of Stash. “It makes for a fun night out when you get to walk around and take in all of what this district has to offer.”
Eatery plans name change
STILLWATER— Although the Italian eatery Joseppis here will remain open until summer, restauranteur Stan Clark, of Eskimo Joe’s fame, is crafting a new concept for the restaurant, including a new name. The new restaurant will be a casual American grill with four lanes of bowling. The menu will feature items like chicken-fried steak, hand-cut steaks, homemade chicken tenders, barbeque, onion strings, macaroni and cheese and more. To make a name suggestion, email RenameJoseppis@joseppis.com or tweet suggestions to @joseppisitalian using the #RenameJoseppis hash tag on Twitter. Nominations will be accepted through March 21.
Del Taco makes donation
Del Taco has donated $3,530 to the Moore school district’s “Rising from the Storm” fund, which supports the rebuilding efforts of the district after the May 2013 tornado. Before opening, Del Taco’s Moore location committed to donating 10 percent of the first three day’s sales to the fund. “The donation is going to be very helpful as we move forward,” Moore schools Superintendent Robert Romines said. “We guarantee we will be able to spend the money for recovery efforts, and feel very fortunate to have Del Taco as part of the Moore Public Schools family. We’re glad they are here.”
