About that octopus on South Street

Octopus perched on second-floor balcony at Ralic's on South.

Crane action on the 100 block of South Street on Saturday, Nov. 17 as Ralic's on South - the forthcoming seafood-sports bar from David Ralic of Haddonfield's Ralic's Steakhouse - installed a decorative octopus on the facade.

The cute critter - designed and fabricated by Peter Bieling Sr. and Jr. - is 15 feet by 15 feet. Father and son also produced undersea murals inside the restaurant at 117-119 South St., which is due to open in December.
