Monsterland Bar & Grill
Dig it!! For Monsterland, Friday the 13th was anything but unlucky. The horror-themed restaurant and nighttime hot spot had its grand opening last week, attracting nearly 1,400 people on Friday and Saturday. It was a strong opening, but the restaurant is still working on finding the silver bullet that will ensure success. Monsterland was originally a two-story haunted house that opened last October. After the Halloween season was over, owner Kevin Wynn conceived of starting a restaurant and nightclub as a way to use the property year-round. Part of the top floor was cleared for the tables and bar, but guests still need to pass a crumbling castle, graveyard and animated props such as a werewolf leering from atop a wall. The downstairs will remain a haunted house, and this October, patrons will be able to watch others being scared on monitors set up on the patio. Story in the link.
