The Sugar House Lounge, at 1395 West Alameda Avenue, marks its first birthday this weekend, with a family and friends party Friday, August 23, and a more, well, adult party on Saturday night -- "a huge, crazy, crowded scene," owner Scottie Ewing promises.
And there's more sugar in store for Sugar House. Ewing says he's shooting to get the place open for open for lunch -- he's snagged a Steak and Ale kitchen manager, who was freed up when Bennigan's went out of business -- and happy hour in September, maybe as soon as the second week of the month, with special happy hour entertainment.
And remember, "if sexy offends you...stay home."
