Starkvegas Snowballs has opened up its shops at 113 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Dr W and 216 Lummus Drive as of today! They will be open daily, serving up ice-cold New Orleans-style goodness from 2 to 6 pm daily.

Recently, Get Yarded Starkville was taken over by Hallee Jourdan, a soon-to-be MSU student, and her family. The shop has been operating in Starkville since 2018 and offers celebratory yard signs for occasions of all sorts, e.g.: birthdays, weddings, pastor week celebrations, business openings, baby showers, and the like.

In sadder news, some local places have closed their doors.
Co-owner Frank Jones has stated that The Veranda, which had been dishing up great food for a good two decades, has shut down. “The Veranda was a sit-down kind of place,” Jones said. “(COVID) just killed places like ours. It made everybody just sick to our stomachs, but we just ran out of money … COVID was just the nail in the coffin. I mean, we were losing money every month. It wasn’t about making a profit; we were just trying to survive.” On the upside, Jones reports that he already has a new tenant on the way, who plans to open a restaurant of his own in the existing building.

Also, local escape room venue Get Out Starkville has also closed for good.


Shipp Family Dentistry has moved to its new, larger digs at 2313 Bluecutt Road. Mon~Thurs 8 to 5 and Fridays from 8 to noon.

The Louisiana Shrimp Shack at 6188 Hwy. 45 has re-opened for inside dining, as we recently reported. It originally opened up last year, and they’re ready to serving up some fine fried and boiled seafood in the Southern Louisiana style. Mon~Sat 11 to 8.
