A popular local restaurant and bar is looking to expand in the near future.
Backaracks owner Bob Scripter told KNEB News Thursday he plans to close his seven year old liquor store by the end of the month and use the space for a new bar that would then connect to the existing restaurant.
Scripter said the changes have been “kicked around for a couple years” but the only motivation is to “enhance the restaurant a little bit.” Scripter says even though the restaurant is “family friendly” now, he wants to add a few “kid-oriented games” to make it even more so.
Scripter says if everything goes well, he plans to open the bar by March 1st. Scripter says the new bar will open at 4:00 p.m. and have more seating while being “more of a bar atmosphere” than in the current set-up.
