Swiping its name from the classic Hecht/MacArthur comedy about tabloid journalists, this new Springdale General spot focuses on what's best about the lunch hour, all day. From cheeky cocktails ("The Blue Stuff Barbers Put Their Combs In") to killer sandwiches (Smokey Turkey Sandwich with barbecued turkey, Swiss, spinach, mustard, and tomatillo chutney!), Shafer, Andrew, and Dick bridge the gap between modern cafe and old-school pub. Don't sleep on that hard kombucha or the pickle platter complete with slices of pickled egg. And if you chew with your mouth closed, you might even hear a neighborhood scoop.
