Brothers debuts at Eddy Street

first_imgThe new Brothers Bar & Grill opened at Eddy Street Commons this weekend, and given the success of the bar’s first few days of operation, company management said it expects greater success and popularity moving forward. Scott Severson, vice president of franchising and development, said the company could not be happier with the bar’s first weekend. “We were very happy with the weekend … I don’t think we’ve had a bigger or better opening than we’ve had in South Bend,” Severson said. “It was absolutely spectacular.” Despite some small challenges associated with opening weekend, Severson said customers seemed pleased with their experience. “The community has been incredibly welcoming to us,” Severson said. “I can’t tell you how many people came up to me … and said, ‘Thank you for coming to South Bend.’ … When we did run into service issues, everybody was incredibly patient and sympathetic and understanding.” Severson said the new location offers 80 different tap handles with 37 different types of beer. “What the students will see in our store in South Bend is a spectacular array of tap beers,” Severson said. “It is really the showcase of that store, and it is something we have gotten great feedback on.” The bar also does not plan to have a cover charge, Severson said. “It was a very, very simple business plan,” Severson said. “We wanted to offer our customers a really nice venue, and offer them food and beverage items that were competitively priced in the market.” The entire menu, with only a few exceptions, offers food made from scratch, Severson said. “At the end of the day, we are a bar that serves really good food,” Severson said. The venue, built in just three months, will be a model for future locations. “The food is great, the environment is great [and] it’s been very positive,” Severson said. “We’re very excited and very happy to be in the South Bend market.” Students who visited the bar over the weekend said they were pleased with their experiences. Senior John Heid said he was curious about Brothers before it opened a location in South Bend. “I heard good things about it at other schools,” Heid said, “but it was also close to campus, and I didn’t need to call a cab to get there.” Heid called Brothers a “pleasant change” from other local bars. “I love the Backer and Finny’s, but I don’t want to be standing in an inch of spilled beer every Friday and Saturday,” Heid said. “I think the centrally located bar was a great idea; everybody wasn’t crowding in the same place. The only problem I had with Brothers was that the dance floor was too small.” Senior Christina Kuklinski said she appreciated the lack of cover charge at the bar. “Brothers has the potential to offer something a little different than your typical South Bend bar,” Kuklinski said. “It’s a lot more laid back than other places, and it’s within walking distance, which is a definite advantage. It was nice to just go and talk with people and not be drowned out by music.” The environment at the bar was more relaxed earlier in the night, but became more busy and loud as everyone began to dance later at night, Kuklinski said. No cover charge was also a draw for senior Tony Dang. “Everywhere else in town has a cover on Saturday nights,” Dang said. “It was nice to just walk in.” Even during the first weekend, Dang said the bar was busy. “It was pretty lively, and they had good music going on,” he said. “What was interesting was that they have a lot of TVs in there, and they play the music videos to the songs they are playing, which is kind of cool. It reminded me of bars I’ve been to in Chicago … You haven’t seen that around here.” Dang said he visited a Brothers location in West Lafayette, Ind., when he visited the city for the Notre Dame football game against Purdue earlier this year. He said he hopes Brothers continues to attract students and develop a similar college-town feel. “That place was packed full of people,” Dang said. “That’s what makes it fun, when you can see a lot of people. Hopefully that’s going to be the case here as more people learn about the bar.”last_img read more

Ramdhani siblings dominate 2019 Canadian Badminton tournament

first_imgCONTINUED magic from Ramdhani siblings, Narayan and Priyanna, lit up things at the Yonex Alberta Series #1 Tournament held at the Sunridge Badminton Centre in Calgary Alberta, Canada.When the series, lasting October 4-5 2019, got under way, the Guyanese badminton aces bagged numerous titles. Priyanna eventually went on to capture another career Women Singles title as well as the Doubles B-Flight, bettering her brother Narayan who won just the Mixed Doubles title despite strong performances.Squaring off against some high-calibre players, some of whom are ranked number one according to Pan American rankings, Priyanna who gained a bye in the semis made light work of Calgary Winter Club’s Carol Fu in the Women’s Singles B-Flight, destroying her 21-10 and 21-13 in the finals.Priyanna then joined forces with Mary Smith as they further inflicted woes upon Fu and her club-mate Jessica Leung, thumping the duo 21-14 and 21-13 in their Doubles B-Flight encounter. The Women’s A-Flight Singles was also a lopsided event as Ivy Ung of Derrick Golf and Winter Club lost to Ramdhani 21-16 and 21-3 in the Quarter-finals. The Semi-Finals witnessed Ramdhani endure a 3-set loss 21-11, 14-21 and 21-13 to the talented Reshma Bhambhani, a No# 2 seed representing the B-Active Badminton Club. Her brother, on the other hand, found luck as Narayan teamed up with Smith to hand Archelle Ouano and Ung a two-set defeat 21-15 and 21-5 in the Mixed event which saw them win the titles.Priyanna and Smith had mixed fortunes as the tourney progressed in the latter stages, losing: 21-14 and 21-14 to No. 1 seeds Emily Chan and Samantha Hsu of The Glencoe Club & B-Active Badminton Club Semi-Finals. However, the Guyanese siblings then bounced back to defeat the Quanos, Archangelo and Archelle, in sets 21-17, 21-15.In the end, supremacy was shown by the Ramdhanis who whipped Viro Hang and Ung easily in the finals after two sets 21-12, 21-15 as the pair of Badminton masters continued to impress and represent Guyana on the international scene.last_img read more

New-look Clippers hope Wilson Chandler will play; Luc Mbah a Moute not ready

first_img What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 BEVERLEY VS. WESTBROOKThe Thunder will, of course, be plenty familiar with Clippers guard Patrick Beverley.OKC superstar Russell Westbrook and Beverley – both among the league’s hardest-playing competitors – have a tense history. That includes an incident in the 2013 playoffs when Beverley crashed into Westbrook’s knee while lunging for the ball after he’d been granted a sideline timeout. Westbrook suffered a torn meniscus that required surgery the next day and ended his postseason.Since then, OKC fans have regularly serenaded Beverley with boos, including earlier this season when the two tangled again, earning double technical fouls and Beverley a flagrant foul-1.Rivers said he anticipates another difficult matchup with Westbrook, as well as another spirited duel between him and Beverley.“You’re not going to match (Westbrook’s) energy,” Rivers said. “You know, Pat may. … Pat just goes and plays. I don’t think he calls anyone out, he just accepts the challenge of anyone. That’s just Pat.”BILL WALTON TO JOIN LAWLERRelated Articles Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters PLAYA VISTA — The Oklahoma City Thunder might not recognize the Clippers when they meet them for the fourth time this season on Friday night at Staples Center.The teams have faced off three times already, but not since Dec. 15 – before the Clippers traded or waived six players and added five others. They won’t, however, welcome back Luc Mbah a Moute to the floor yet; he is listed as out on the injury report released by the team Thursday afternoon.Mbah a Moute practiced with the team for the first time in months Wednesday, but “Luc didn’t make it,” Coach Doc Rivers said before Thursday’s practice.“He went a little bit and then had to pull himself out,” Rivers added. Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum Kristaps Porzingis ruled out as Clippers, Mavericks set for Game 5; Follow for game updates center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error On the bright side, “Wilson (Chandler) did make it” Thursday, Rivers said.Mbah a Moute, a 6-foot-8 forward, has missed all but the first four games of the season with a “sore left knee,” and Chandler, a 6-9 forward, has been recovering from a right quad strain and hasn’t yet played for the Clippers since they brought him aboard as a part of the Tobias Harris trade with Philadelphia. Chandler is considered questionable for Friday’s game, according to the team.“Wilson actually looked pretty good,” Rivers said. “You think of all the time he missed, you can tell he’s back because all of our stuff, he ran. It’s like he had been playing, so that was probably the most positive part of it.”Danilo Gallinari said Chandler – with whom he previously played nine seasons as teammates in New York and Denver – said he felt for his friend, who’s had to acclimate to a new team without being able to compete.“But he’s getting closer,” Gallinari said. “He practiced with us already, so I’m happy that he’s closer to playing. I know Wilson very well and I look forward to seeing him on the court. He can help us a lot.” Ralph Lawler will call his final regular-season Clippers game on April 10, when the team has plans to celebrate Ralph Lawler Night. His longtime friend and former broadcast partner Bill Walton will join for the occasion, with plans to provide commentary on Fox Sports Prime Ticket.Additionally, the Clippers plan to honor Lawler – who will be inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame in September – for his 40 years as the “Voice of the Clippers” throughout the game and with a halftime ceremony. The Clippers will unveil a logo on the court honoring Lawler, and players will wear a special shooting shirt thanking him.Also, the first 10,000 fans at the game will receive Ralph Lawler bobbleheads that will recite Lawlerisms at the push of a button, including Lawler’s law, “Bingo!,” “Oh me, oh my!” and “The lob, the jam!” For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory last_img read more

Lakers grind out a victory in Memphis to split 2-game trip

first_img Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed The duo lit up the 3-point line, combining to shoot 8 for 16 from deep and accounting for half of the Lakers’ season-best long-range total. Playing more minutes than usual to supplement a lineup without Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo, they also played key roles in limiting the influence of the Memphis backcourt, including Mike Conley (4 for 12, 12 points).The Lakers took their first double-digit lead a minute before the end of the first quarter and never gave it up. Even when the bench rotated in – a sticking point in a handful of games this season – the Lakers managed to grow the advantage, pushing pace and grabbing rebounds even with James cooling his heels.Teammates cited the energy of backup center Tyson Chandler, who had 10 of his 14 rebounds in the first half, for setting the tone on the glass. The Lakers had a 36-11 rebounding advantage by halftime, fueling the 23-point gap to that point in the game. The Lakers set a season-high with 19 offensive rebounds.Related Articles PreviousGrizzlies center Marc Gasol drives against Lakers center JaVale McGee during the first half of Saturday’s game in Memphis, Tenn.

(AP Photo/Brandon Dill)ExpandMEMPHIS — The selling point of the Grizzlies for the better part of a decade is that while they might not have the most talent, they’re rarely out-hustled on the floor of the FedEx Forum.How striking, then, to see the Lakers (16-10) beating the Grizzlies on the glass, gathering up loose balls, smothering on defense – out-grinding Memphis on the second night of a road back-to-back.That tenacity carried the Lakers to their fifth win in six games, a 111-88 bruising of Memphis (15-10) that underlined not only a talent gap but a willingness to do the dirty work. With a 21-rebound advantage and 20 second-chance points while holding the Grizzlies to 40.5 percent shooting, the Lakers won with a purely Memphis-ian brand of grit.It was all the more welcome on the road, where the Lakers improved to .500 on the year. They also did it without three rotation players, a scenario Coach Luke Walton acknowledged beforehand was going to lead him to play “interesting” lineups. But he needn’t have feared: The Lakers improved to 5-1 in the second game of back-to-backs, which Walton called an encouraging sign for the team’s maturity. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“This is a game we wouldn’t have won earlier here: back-to-back road games,” Walton said. “It’s a good team. We came out and pretty much put our stamp on the game early and we kept it. That’s not easy to do against a team like that.”LeBron James was his typical self: 20 points, eight rebounds and nine assists to go with a handful of crowd-pleasing dunks on the rare occasions when the Lakers were able to break out in transition. But Kyle Kuzma also was a clearly established running mate in the victory, adding 20 points, nine rebounds and six assists while hitting four 3-pointers.Though his rookie year highlighted his scoring abilities, Kuzma has been vocal about his determination to transcend his status as a mere bucket-getter. The last five games have offered a tantalizing whiff of that potential: He’s averaging 21.4 points, but also 9.2 rebounds, 4.4 assists and shooting over 38 percent from 3-point range while getting highlighted by Walton as a plus-defender.“Recently I haven’t really had to think about scoring too much, it just comes natural,” Kuzma said. “I just try to defend, rebound and try to find my teammates. I know the scoring is gonna be there.”While Walton bemoaned how his shallow depth at guard was hurting the continuity of the team, it was hard to actually see the dropoff with how Josh Hart and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope played on Saturday night.

Players and staff dined on chicken wings, yukking it up over the team’s latest win.With 12 wins in the last 16 games, winning is starting to feel a little more natural to these Lakers. And winning always feels good.“Anytime you come in this building you expect it to be physical,” James said. “You expect to play at their pace, because that’s just the way they play. And you know you got to win. You got to win here. They’re not going to beat themselves and that’s what happened tonight. They didn’t beat themselves.
