Alewife Baltimore is running full-page ads in the City Paper--and Facebook posts--announcing its "Grand Opening Week" from Dec. 1st through the 5th. All draft beers are $4, all food discounted $3; happy hour specials 4-6 PM. According to their website, after the "grand opening week" happy hour policy will be "4pm-6pm every Monday thru Friday all drinks are $1 off and all food is $2 off (except sides). There will also be a $4 Bartender’s Choice Draft Special."
I suppose September, October, and November counted as the "soft opening." Hey, as long as they don't do what a lot of restaurants and take-out joints do, leaving up a "Grand Opening!!!" sign for months.......
