Noles General Store is moving to a booth space at Antique Gallery in Lewisville after operating at 315 W. Hickory St. for almost six years. Christye Price, the store's buyer, said the business wanted to downsize and take away the daily commitment of running the shop. Move-out is set for the end of March.
Speaking of moves, Old West Cafe is moving by the end of the month. The new location (formerly the Black-eyed Pea) will double the restaurant's seating area.
All nine theaters are now open, y'all: The Movie Tavern renovations are over! In addition to the new big, reclining seats, there's also a new menu for the dine-in theater.
Another season, another ownership change for a Fry Street-area bar. Local 109 is open at 109 Ave. A, the former home of Library Bar. The bar is a modern cocktail lounge and opened in late February.
Denton favorite West Oak Coffee Bar has a little sister now: Kimzey's Coffee in Argyle. The whimsical exterior has us thinking about Lord of the Rings or a fairy tale, but the quality of coffee is the same. It opened March 6 at the intersection of U.S. Highway 377 at FM407 -- near Earl's 377 Pizza.
In the same complex, the culinary team behind Barley & Board is finalizing a new concept: Bumbershoot Barbecue. Bumbershoot's barbecue menu will include brisket (smoked with hickory, then pecan); pulled pork; St. Louis-style ribs; roasted chicken and turkey; and at least two varieties of sausage. It's expected to open by the end of the month.
Bonus round: More sushi could be coming to downtown Denton. Rick Villarreal, who was the athletic director at the University of North Texas for 15 years, just signed a lease to open a sushi restaurant. The spot is where Tea2Go used to be: 321 W. Hickory St.
