Next time you are driving down Main in Bismarck, you may notice that there is something going on in the former Starving Rooster location.

KFYR-TV is reporting that a new bar and restaurant is coming to town! It took the owners two years of planning, and now they are down to the space renovation of Bismarck's newest hot spot, Jimmy V's. We can expect to be able to safely checkout the new hang either in late December or early January. Get the full story from KFYR-TV.

As disappointing as it is that the Starving Rooster closed, it is good that we are getting a new local business. And if you are a supporter of local businesses, now is the time to eat, drink, and shop local!

How can you support local businesses during the pandemic holiday season? You can dine-in or shop in-store at local places, online shop at local businesses, utilize business's "to-go" options, buy gift cards, over tip service industry workers, leave good reviews online, send shout outs on social media, refer friends and family, and so much more.

Oh, and you may recognize the last name of a person involved with Jimmy V's - Nardello. That is because of the Bismarck pizza place by the same name. So, if you have ever tried anything from Nardello's you should anticipate top quality grub at the new restaurant and bar. Just saying.

In what ways do you show support for your favorite local businesses in Bismarck and Mandan?
