Buchanan’s Pub & Grub to host Grand Opening Extravaganza

Buchanan's Pub & Grub, a hometown bar in Auxvasse that recently changed owners, is planning to hold a Grand Opening Extravaganza.

The grand opening is meant to celebrate the opening of this business and to give the community a place to interact, along with trying the new food.

Sage Buchanan has been the new owner of the business since March.

"I want to give this community a hometown place with good food; in which I have not liked the food being served by Buchanans in the past," Buchanan said.

Being a local, he wanted to give a place that is always stable and open, along with jobs that pay a livable wage.

"I truly want people to enjoy this grand opening, where it is free to enter the games, in which people can come enjoy themselves, try the food, have a great time, and have a chance to win prizes," Buchanan said.

Events for the grand opening will be from Tuesday, Sept. 19 to Saturday, Sept. 23.

The prizes are all provided by himself, other than a guitar donated by Blue Light Fabricator.

There will be a Cards Against Humanity tournament on Sept. 19. The tournament will begin at 6:30 p.m. The top two players will receive either a drone or game bundle.

A poker tournament will be on Sept. 20 at 6:30 p.m. The top two players will receive either a Blink XT2 home security camera or a 32-inch television.

A dart tournament will be on Sept. 21 at 6:30 p.m. The top two players will receive either a 10-inch Fire tablet or robot vacuum.

The final tournament of the week will be on Sept. 22 with a pool tournament. The top two players will receive either a drone or an Aero Garden.

The games are meant to be fun and humorous, with all of them holding a new thing to do for every night.

"The top two winners of the events Tuesday through Friday night will be able to participate in the blind chicken contest," Buchanan said. "The rest, anyone can enter."

The last event of the week will be a karaoke contest on Sept. 23 from 8-9 p.m. Each participant is allowed to sing one song. The top two singers will receive either a Coleman hot tub or Bluelight Fabrication Cigar Box guitar.

"My manager, Jill, is an amazing person who has been instrumental in opening this business, and this event in general," Buchanan said.

Other than Jill, he explained that the rest of the staff has been integral in this opening.

"The community had slow engagement through the first six months of opening, however, the community support the last couple of months has been amazing," he added.

Buchanan said his main goal is for "the community to love our food and our atmosphere."

He hopes for everyone to come to the Grand Opening, even if not wanting to participate in games. Food and social interaction will also be available at this opening.
