Strangelove's sets its opening

Strangelove's sets its opening


Strangelove's - the beer bar at 216 S. 11th St. from the Memphis Taproom/Resurrection Ale House/Local 44 crew - has set April 23 at 5 p.m. as its grand opening.

Opening night will feature a "Strangelove's-is-not-messing-around" opening draft list (online here) and complimentary selections from chef Paul Martin's menu throughout the night. (Speaking of menu: I spy the shrimp etoufee, the gumbo and the po'boys that put Martin on the local map when he was at Catahoula.)

Regular menu service will be available starting Wednesday, April 24 at 11:30 a.m. The kitchen will be open until midnight daily.

Weekend brunch is planned.
