Kimberly Rodgers and Valerie Goodman were also given a consumer beer license for Dinky’s Bar and Grill, the new restaurant they are opening at 2407 Glass St. It will only be open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday from 5-11 p.m.

The owners envision it to be a place for people who live in the neighborhood to eat and mingle and will be limited to ages 35 and over. There will be TVs but no live entertainment.
