Derek Gores is the ‘it dude’ in the art community, creating art since the 70’s as he drew his own Star Wars characters. Out of art school, Gores designed t-shirts for the Grateful Dead and other musicians just before making the leap to pursue his own thing at the age of 37.

I have already convinced my husband to take me here for date nights and sold the ladies
Who owns this joint? JT’s Social Bar is a partnership between JJ Turk & Thomas Carrigan. But none of it would be possible without the backing of Donna “Mama T” Turk and the whole Turk family. Those that know her understand the kind of person she is… As far as the name, we wanted to name it after JJ, Big John Turk and Thomas. Tell us about how the JT’s came to be. What’s your schtick and what’s the inspiration that started the wheels turning? Thomas Carrigan ran the Sapphire L

A creative turnabout has (wonderfully) entered our city, bringing forth a proper, open garage-style tap house for the masses to enjoy! After nine painstaking months of renovation, 4th Street Fillin Station Gastrobar and Grill opened their doors in February fo
