Thursdays are now *the* Night in the Gables

This week marks the launch of "Get Your Gables On Thursdays", where bars and restaurants will be offering special deals on Thursdays, deals that you'll hopefully find so good you have to check it out for yourself.

Great post.

I especially like how the special at Sub Serious hasn't changed in at least three years, according to the whiteboard in the window!

Sounds great in the Gables. And we merchants and vast majority of Grovites entreaty you folks to come over and enjoy our village. Please do not think that we are as dull & unimaginative & hostile as the Coconut Grove Vine would have you believe. The Author has an agenda to create readership and comments that are hate/biased based and has, in our opinion, harmed our business and family based community during these financially difficult times. People and locals do not walk around the Grove until the sun comes up acting out with drunked
abandon or run over bicyclist. We have good food, positive entertainment thanks to our BID and offer a lot to the family and individuals.
