Franklin's Update

I noticed the sign is up. Looks like it could be soon. Anyone in the know?

  1. I think he said 2nd week of March when I was at the trailer last Saturday. He did say that actual capacity will initially be lower than his current location...48 heads if I remember correctly. He did say that the day he moves in he's getting permits to add ADA accessible bathrooms and outdoor (maybe partially enclosed...can't remember) seating that will significantly increase the capacity.

    1. We traded emails last week and he projected pre-SXSW but didn't give me an exact date.

      1. I was there yesterday and he said hopefully around March 8.

        1. I took a look at the inside this weekend, still a lot of work to be done. March 8 seems like an optimistic date, hope it happens though.

          He said they plan on adding a beer garden at some point.

          1. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Aaron pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

            P.S. - It's Franklin, not Franklin's

              This is food we're talking about, not Tolstoy, McGrumps.

                  Nice. All minor corrections should have to post something funny before the correction in order to soften the blow.

                    I'm confused. What am I missing here? I don't understand the previous four comments at all.

                      quotes from ferris bueller, and then a p.s. that the poster mis-spelled the restaurant.

                      1. re: dinaofdoom

                        Franklin just posted on Facebook that the new location will open March 12.

                        Also: This Sunday will be the last day of the trailer location, and he promises "free beer."
