Almost two-and-a-half years have passed since Vanelli’s restaurant closed after a tornado damaged the iconic eatery. Its rebirth as Vanelli’s Bistro in downtown Tupelo is on the horizon.
Daily Journal business editor Dennis Seid (11:30) joins Derek and Brad on today’s show to talk about the new-yet-familiar restaurant that plans to serve pizza and salads. An official opening has not yet been announced, but owner Voz Vanelli has been testing out the kitchen and food and says it will open soon.
Also on today’s show, Capitol Bureau chief Bobby Harrison (19:30) discusses a new website from the Secretary of State’s Office that will allow voters to update addresses and other information online rather than going to circuit clerks’ offices. Will the new Y’all Vote website build momentum for other initiatives proposed by Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, such as online voter registration and early voting?
M. Scott Morris (29:29) reviews “Sully,” and Derek (35:22) highlights the weekend entertainment scene – Down on Main, Pied Piper celebration, Bodock Festival and more.
