The venerable Southern Billiards at 103 S. Washington St. in Starkville will be reopening tomorrow! They renovated the place in December 2019 and planned to reopen shortly after that, but certain events got in the way. Owner Sam Gilmer said, “There’s a lot of our regulars that have asked me over the years when I was going to get back open. . . So I expect to see a lot of them Friday and over the weekend and next couple of weeks.”

The Starkville Area Arts Council will soon be featuring the art of half a dozen locals at their new gallery at 122 E. Main St. in Starkville; the planned premiere date will be September 1st. Program Coordinator Juliette Reid said, “Hopefully with all the wonderful new people who are maybe coming to town for the first time, or they’re just going down Main Street before they go off to the game, we can get our name out there, get the artists’ information out there and sell some art.”
