ST. GEORGE – Locally owned ‘Bout Time Pub & Grub will celebrate its grand opening Thursday, from 4-9 p.m., at its location in the Phoenix Plaza at 929 West Sunset Boulevard in St. George. The event will feature menu samples, door prizes, Harlem Globetrotter ticket giveaways, a live ESPN radio show broadcast, and appearances by professional boxers.
Dean Barnett was the former manager of Ruby Tuesday in St. George until it closed, he said, and then he relocated to Pocatello, Idaho. After talking with Joe Fraser who owns ‘Bout Time corporate and runs the Salt Lake City ‘Bout Time Pub & Grub, Barnett found a franchise opportunity available in St. George and pursued it.
“I’ve lived here two or three times throughout my life,” Barnett said. “The last time we had Ruby Tuesdays and they closed it down; we missed St. George, this is perfect,” he said.
‘Bout Time opened its doors on Dec. 4, 2013.
“It surprised me how well it did right from the git-go,” Dean Barnett said, “we’ve been very busy, really good response.”
‘Bout Time is open in St. George from 10 a.m. to 1 a.m. seven days a week.
With eight Utah locations, including Cottonwood, Salt Lake City, Herriman, Ogden, Park City, Tayorsville, West Jordan and West Valley, this is the first ‘Bout Time Pub & Grub for Southern Utah.
More than just food
All of the ‘Bout Time Pub & Grub locations are outfitted with high quality HD video equipment so that the game is shown crystal clear – making the Pub a great place to watch sports. They carry the NFL Sunday ticket, MLB Extra Innings and the MLS Direct Kick from Direct TV so no one has to miss their favorite team.
