Happy New Year!

After giving our employees a few days off for the holidays to be with their families, we are open and ready for an awesome 2015! What a year 2014 was for Starkvegas! An incredible season by our beloved Bulldogs put our town in the national spotlight (http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/11/29/sports/ncaafootball/mississippi-states-town-embraces-its-programs-prominence.html?referrer=) for an extended period of time and the people of Starkville responded by showing the country what southern hospitality was all about.

Personally, we were able to open The Guest Room tgr1, a craft cocktail speakeasy below Restaurant Tyler, and the support from the community has far exceeded our expectations! The project was in our minds for several years now and we owe a big thank you to interior designer Amanda Shafer ( 323-1628) for helping make it a reality. Kane Overstreet ( 323-8618) and Brandon Page worked long hours to get us ready for SEC season and did an excellent job with the construction.

The Guest Room kicked off with a September 24th fundraiser for the Mullen 36 Foundation that raised a little over $7,000 for the very worthwhile charity. Dan and Megan Mullen, Ty Thames, Kane Overstreet, Amanda Shafer, Brian KelleyWe have some more exciting changes coming to Eat Local Starkville in early spring 2015. We can’t wait to unveil those in the coming months. Stay tuned…
