More openings

Some more openings of places that I missed last week.

Pop’s Place—eastside, intersection of Butler Market and 27th Street. They occupy the space originally populated by Little Pizza Paradise (before they moved to the Cascade Village Shopping Center), then by Hot Lips or Hot Rock Pizza or whatever it was in the interim. They are billing themselves as an “AmeriMexItali Express Café” which means “a fun family friendly restaurant serving American, Mexican, and Italian meals prepared quickly with the freshest of ingredients.”

The Stihl Whiskey Bar—downtown, in the former Bo Restobar location in the Franklin Crossing building. They offer a full bar, specializing in custom whiskey drinks (obviously), and I believe a full menu as well. There’s not a lot of information yet but the photos look cool and the comments are positive so far.

I’m sure there are even more that have slipped my mind at the moment, so leave a comment if you can think of any!

And as a side note: both of these new businesses only seem to have a Facebook page, not an actual web page with their own URL. Really, businesses should have their own URL first, even if it’s just a landing page with contact info; I’d be nervous about putting all your online eggs into one (Facebook) basket.
