My Cirlce K has re-opened!!!

After a few weeks of construction, the Cirlce K at the corner of St. Landry and University is back open for business. The very busy store has been remodeled and features all new fixtures, a modern look and a walk-in beer cooler. This store sells quite a bit of alcohol on weekends, and I’m sure the owners are glad to be open for Festival International. Store workers say they opened early – around noon on Good Friday. Most of the other Circle K stores around Lafayette have been recently renovated – and the rest are in line for work.

I’ve put together an interactive google map of new developments in Lafayette.  As always, let me know if you see something or want to know more about something around town.  The link to the google map is in the “link” section to the left.

Pub / Grill Coming to Former Bonnie Bell’s

The building that has just been vacated by Bonnie Bell’s Bistro on Brook Ave. (across St. Mary from Old Tyme Grocery) will soon be home to a new grill / pub.  Papa Mello’s is aiming to open up in April.  Some folks working on the building told me they’ll offer burgers, sandwiches and salads – and beer!  Due to a location with nearby residential neighbors – Papa Mello’s will close at midnight, Monday – Saturday. 

If I owned the place, I’d work 24/7 to get something open for Mardi Gras – in just a few days, thousands of possible future customers will be spending lots of time on the nearby parade route on foot.  But then again, they may be waiting on a liquor license.  No doubt, the owners are hoping to cash in on the big UL lunch crowd.  Before becoming Bonnie Bell’s (which moved Downtown late last year), the building on Brooke Ave. used to be Gallagher’s (now on University near McKinley).  I’ll keep you updated as to when they open.
