We just got off the phone with local architect and restaurant owner Jason Anderson and he says his remodel of the old Magpies Pizza location at 605 N. Fourth Ave. will be completed tomorrow.
Anderson says he's reworked the entire outdoor area - a piece of prime outdoor seating right along Fourth Avenue - and even added a place to play bocce ball. A new bar, more televisions, a new design theme, way more beer on tap and a bunch of wine and other drinks have also been added.
He also said he's putting in an ice cream shop next door to Magpies that will be called Parlour. He expects that to open in about a month. He's also working on another concept in the area, but had to keep it a secret for the time being.
That's a lot of action for the decades-old Magpies Pizza shop, but with all the updates happening in that area its sort of neat to see the place keeping pace with the times.
