The Silver Dollar Pizzeria and Pub in Stites is celebrating the completion of their outdoor covered patio with a grand opening on Friday, May 18, at 7 p.m. The Grant Webb Band will begin at 8 p.m., for dancing. They are a three-piece band described as southern rock and blues with country twang. You are welcome to come early for dinner. A mini-bar is available outside for beer and a few select drinks, so you don’t have to go inside at all if you don’t want to. I’ve enjoyed watching the transformation of the old outdoor space, a muddy patch with a chain link fence around it, to a nice paved patio with a high open-air roof. These last couple of weeks people have been out enjoying the space. They will have ice buckets with six beers for $13.May 16, 2018 6 a.m. read more..
