It was Standing Room only last Saturday nite for the Grand Opening of Andrews Place in the Furys Ferry Station shopping center. With Marilyn and Joe Adcock providing the entertainment, the place rocked for nearly 4 hours with about half of the more than 200 (estimated) attendees still there at the end. Those seated in the dining room were treated to complimentary drinks and food, although apparently bar patrons were not given free food.
All in all, it was a big success for owner Nicky Marks, but he’s not content with the status quo:
1) He’s instituted a Happy Hour from 4 – 7 PM daily with competitive bar prices ($3 for well drinks, $2 for domestic and wines start at $5.
2) He’s promised 1st class entertainment and he’s delivering — perennial Best of Augusta entertainer Eryn Eubanks and the Family Fold will be playing Wednesday nite, 12/18, starting at 6:30.
3) I understand that food prices have been slashed, but I haven’t eaten a full meal there yet (but I intend to this Friday nite).
4) And if you’re in Andrews Place by about 6:15 on Wednesday nite, you could become a media darling — a TV camera crew is coming in to shoot a publicity video, and you might just be the star, or starlet! Or, a groupie.
