From Hot Topic to Highballs: Wigle Whiskey's latest outpost has a DEAL for the 21+ crowd

The mall is no longer just a place for teenagers to hang out and pretend they don’t know the parent who drove them there.  Wigle Whiskey has a deal for those who have graduated from spending their nights browsing the racks at hot topic.

Have you dreamed of sipping a Sazerac with your Sbarro?

Your food court dreams do come true at Ross Park Mall.

Wigle Whiskey has created an event that is only for the over 21 crowd, meet the $5 Food Court Happy Hour. Every Friday, grab your food at the food court and head on down the escalator to the Wigle Whiskey Tasting Room at Ross Park Mall for a $5 highball cocktail.


Sadly no Sbarro, but lots of other choices…

As you can tell from the Sbarro reference, it has been a while since I’ve dined in the food court at the mall. I assumed that the food court staples of Sbarro and Panda Express would be present. A quick look at the Ross Park Mall map and there are several new food options to try including some that appear to offer food that is not deep fried.
