All three Silver Star patios will be open starting Friday, May 1st and the weather is going to be perfect! As you know, it's been a few weeks since we've been able to say that!

All three of David Alvis' Silver Star locations with patios in Shreveport/Bossier; The Grill, The Cantina, and The Smokehouse, will be serving their full menus for 'take-out.' And with the loosening of coronavirus restrictions, you'll be able to enjoy your meal at any on the restaurants' patios. In fact, Silver Star Smokehouse has one of the biggest patios in the state. You may know it as The Stage;) I don't know about you, but the ability to eat somewhere that isn't my car or my house excites me. I can promise you, I'll be having a 'Picnic at the Stage at Silver Star' at some point this weekend!

Now keep in mind, they aren't allowed to offer table service, but honestly, I don't care!

But that's not all! We spoke to David Alvis, the owner of the Silver Star restaurants, and he's got big news. He's opening a drive-in theater he's calling The Grove. The Grove Drive-In Theater will be located next to Silver Star Smokehouse in Bossier, just down from the race track. Construction will begin within the week and David says it could be open within a month! Think date night! Think family night! Yes, it'll be open on both Friday and Saturday nights with one evening targeted toward families, the other for adults.

I don't know about you, but this is the perfect way to enjoy some quality entertainment in the age of social distancing. Just think, Silver Star take-out and a movie. I'm in!
