An Invitation to Alice’s Restaurant

If you’ve been wondering when Alice’s Restaurant will be opening at the airport, what will it look like, and what will it serve, tonight can be your night. A special invitation has been extended to Mahon About Town subscribers to attend tonight’s (Wednesday) pre-opening party, between 6 and 8 p.m.

I understand they’ll be phasing in to full service over the next few days.
