Maple Street Biscuit Company Is Getting Ready To Open Their 11th Location
Maple Street Biscuit Company is a local restaurant group who will be opening their 11th location this summer at the Pointe Meadows Shopping Center just off Interstate 295. The shopping center where they will locate already has a Winn-Dixie and a Stein Mart as it's main tenants.
Maple Street Biscuit Company was started by Scott Moore and Gus Evans in Jacksonville, Florida. They opened their doors on November 8th, 2012 to a community with open arms and hungry tummies. They opened in San Marco and have always focused on southern comfort food with a modern twist. Since that opening, they have seen such great success and have opened more community stores in the surrounding area.
There lies a heart beat behind Maple Street before it ever opened its doors, and it wasn’t out to just make a profit. It was out to make a difference and be a part of the community. Walking into every Maple Street, you should be walking into a culture created around the idea of just that. They put them in every store for a reason. Besides serving you delicious food, they wanted to create an atmosphere for a memorable experience as well. Those community tables are the key.to sharing a meal with someone who you may or may not know.

Steve Miller Band with guests Los Lonely Boys April 2nd at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre!
Steve Miller was a mainstay of the San Francisco music scene that upended American culture in the late ‘60s. with albums like Children of the Future, Sailor and Brave New World, Miller perfected a psychedelic blues sound that drew on the deepest sources of American roots music and simultaneously articulated a compelling vision of what music - and society - could be in the years to come. Then, in the ‘70s, Miller crafted a brand of rock ‘n’ roll music that was polished, exciting and irresistible, and that has dominated radio through today. Hit followed hit in what seemed like an endless flow: “The Joker,” “Livin’ in the USA,” “Take the Money and Run,” “Rock’n Me,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Jet Airliner,” “Jungle Love,” and “Abracadabra” among them. To this day, these songs are instantly recognizable when they come on the radio – and impossible not to sing along with. Running through Miller’s catalogue is a combination of virtuosity and songcraft along with melodic vocals and signature guitar riffs. His parents were jazz aficionados – Les Paul was his godfather – so as a budding guitarist and singer, Mill... [Read More]
