Hayes Midtown Bar & Grill celebrated its grand opening Saturday evening, Aug. 8, with a free fish buffet and live music.

Fried fish, coleslaw and fried ‘taters were served beginning at 6 p.m. The fish was perfectly fried and delicious. By 8 p.m., the Dave Barton Band was ready to play, and drawing for door prizes began. Customers enjoyed keno, pool, visiting with friends, or specialty drinks. After 20 years of bartending experience, Bar Manager Eva Sullins says if she’s not heard of a drink, she’ll find out about it and make it.
