Hairworks and Cappy’s Point are now open side-by-side at 104 U.S. 90 near the bridge in Bay St. Louis.
Hairworks owner Jan Peterman Mitchell loves the beauty salon’s new roomier location. Hairworks, open for more than 30 years, features a new treatment room with Rodan+Fields skin care products.
Cappy’s Point owner Jeanne Pertuit already offered a unique collection of home decor, artwork and classic children’s toys in her Old Town location and she’s thinking of adding more art and apparel at the new location. Say hi to Layla, the Dixie Dingo, when you visit.
The two businesses are planning a big grand opening celebration soon.
Rickey Peters, late of Rickey’s Off The Tracks, is now in the kitchen at Buoy’s Bar, cooking lunch and early evening meals.
The menu for the new Rickey’s Beach Grill is slowly evolving, but fans of Rickey’s will find some familiar dishes. Think crawfish étouffée, seafood gumbo and Swamp Burger!
Next week Rickey’s will start serving a $10 daily lunch special, including old favorites like red beans and rice, baked chicken Florentine and Yucatan chicken. In a couple of weeks Rickey’s will be serving up a weekly baby back rib night starting around 5 p.m.
“It’s not like the old Rickey’s,” Rickey said, “but it’s familiar.”
And finally, you can eat at Trapani’s Eatery every day if you want to. The beachfront restaurant in the Bay is now open 7 days a week. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Sunday. On Friday and Saturday, hours are 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
