Three upgrades at Metro Grill III
The restaurant at 10096 E. 13th St. is having a “grand reopening” at 11 a.m. Monday, complete with a Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting. Diners will get 10 percent off all day on Monday. Although the restaurant originally opened in June of 2012, chef Michael Gonzalez has made some big changes. Among them:
Marco’s Pizza opens Monday
A new pizza restaurant set to open next week will bring you a movie along with your pie – as long as you order online. Marco’s Pizza,part of a chain that started in Toledo, Ohio, and now has restaurants in 29 states, is expected to open on Monday. (The movie delivery component won’t start immediately, though.) The restaurant, which also has locations in Topeka and the Kansas City area, is at 3305 W. Central, which is right next door to Family Video. The two stores have worked out a deal that will allow Marco’s to eventually deliver online customers a movie along with a pizza. They’ll pick up the movie, too, but only if you order another pizza. Marco’s menu includes several varieties of pizza, available on plain, Parmesan and garlic crusts. It’ll also have salads and sandwiches. For more information, call 316-946-5646.
Red Stocking Breakfast is Thursday
The annual Red Stocking Breakfast, a fundraiser for the Kansas Children’s Service League, is from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. Thursday at Carlos O’Kelly’s, 7703 E. Douglas.
