Maple Street Biscuit Company Is Getting Ready To Open Their 11th Location
Maple Street Biscuit Company is a local restaurant group who will be opening their 11th location this summer at the Pointe Meadows Shopping Center just off Interstate 295. The shopping center where they will locate already has a Winn-Dixie and a Stein Mart as it's main tenants.
Maple Street Biscuit Company was started by Scott Moore and Gus Evans in Jacksonville, Florida. They opened their doors on November 8th, 2012 to a community with open arms and hungry tummies. They opened in San Marco and have always focused on southern comfort food with a modern twist. Since that opening, they have seen such great success and have opened more community stores in the surrounding area.
There lies a heart beat behind Maple Street before it ever opened its doors, and it wasn’t out to just make a profit. It was out to make a difference and be a part of the community. Walking into every Maple Street, you should be walking into a culture created around the idea of just that. They put them in every store for a reason. Besides serving you delicious food, they wanted to create an atmosphere for a memorable experience as well. Those community tables are the key.to sharing a meal with someone who you may or may not know.

St. Augustine FL - “Gentlemen of the Road Stopover” was the biggest event that has happened this year and 904 Happy Hour went down to St Augustine’s Francis Field get the low down. I got to go down to Francis Field both days of the festival to check out the music and the crowd. From observing the number of attendees, it was said that there were at least 30,000 people that attended the festival. The line-up contained 12 bands for the two day festival. Mumford and Sons was the headliner for the festival and they performed a great show and gave the best performance their fans have ever seen. What also makes this a big event is that this was the final show for the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover and St. Augustine was the last stop. This festival was very artsy and brought many attendees from Jacksonville to Tampa and some people from out of the state as well.
Day 1 went off smoothly and showcased Willy Mason, Thao and the Get Down and Stay Down, The Walkmen and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. Each band gave a great performance and had their unique style. I categorized some of these bands as alternative, indie rock, or indie folk band. Each band performed a one hour set and I thought they all did a great job. When the night was over... [Read More]
