Jackie and I finally found time to drop by the Blue Jackalope today. It’s a local grocery store near Newblock Park and the brainchild of my friend, Scott Smith. The official opening was May 29th, but we’ve been busy with this and that, so this was our first chance to see it “in action.”
Scott’s loaded the shelves with an eclectic mix of local produce, canned goods, cold drinks and Mexican candy. To satisfy those looking for instant gratification there’s also high-octane coffee and light fare to nosh on. Future plans include more prepared meals and gospel karaoke on Sunday mornings.
The Blue Jackalope is located at 306 S. Phoenix, which is just west of downtown on Charles Page Boulevard. For hours and more info visit www.bluejackalope.com.
