A new soul food restaurant, complete with live entertainment, is opening Saturday.
Tycoons Cabaret & Grill, 2650 Coliseum Blvd. S., is a cabaret in its traditional sense, owner Terrance Hurd says – simply, entertainment provided while an audience eats or drinks at tables.
And the goods being eaten are Southern soul food favorites, such as alligator nuggets and frog legs. Tycoons will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, with hours from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. the next morning.
The restaurant will feature comedy routines, live R&B and live jazz on Saturday afternoons.
On its opening weekend, Tycoons will feature Chico Debarge, featuring DJ Bnasty. For tickets and more details, call 498-7212.
The following restaurants and shops have also opened or closed recently:
Yogo Stop, 3001 Hillegas Road, opened last week. It is connected to a Phils One Stop, says owner Phil Carper, who also owns 12 of the convenience stores. The shop has indoor seating. This is his first frozen yogurt store. Yogo Stop has 21 flavors of frozen yogurt and 36 toppings.
According to the Fort Wayne-Allen County Department of Health, Old World Fudge in Glenbrook Square has closed. The shop had been outside J.C.
