Game pub update
Danielle Rupinski, owner of the Rook & Rogue Board Game Pub, 206 W. Magnolia St., says the pub has expanded its weekday hours for the summer and is now open to 11 p.m. on weeknights. In fact, she says, the goal is to stay open as late as they’ve got enough paying customers, so if you want to push the needle later, the best way to do so is to come in when the pub’s open late. They’ve rolled out new menus and have more appetizers, more veggie-friendly foods, and there are plans to roll out even more. Some of the highlights of the new menu include Whovian Mac & Cheese (also available with chili and/or bacon), poutine and house-made mojo pork. Brunch starts at 10 a.m. on weekends.
They’ve also set up online reservations for annual members and are planning to roll out a weekly game night to pair customers up with other gamers and teach new games. Daily specials are updated on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and rookandrogue.com. Info: (360) 207-4038, https://www.rookandrogue.com and on Facebook.
