OK, based on the language that Eater uses about this rumor, maybe might be too strong a word. In either case, something to think about:
First, we’re hearing from a couple of sources that the Franks (of the Frankies Spuntinos and Prime Meats) are working in conjunction with Shane Welch of Sixpoint Craft Ales to open a cafe on Court Street and (yes and) a Frankies beer garden in the vicinity of—or perhaps even in—the current space of the Sixpoint Brewery. We always wished that brewery could have a tap room, so this idea is pretty much gold. Neither Mr. Welch nor anyone at Frankies will confirm the rumors
The folks at Sixpoint have always been good neighbors (except for their too-hard-to-identify front door. Even as I type this I’m not sure if the picture above is the door I’ve gone through or the decoy). Here’s wishing them the best, whether they have visions of beer gardens dancing in their heads or not.
