It looks like Sloopers won't have much longer to wait for Villains' long-gestating new location to open, as licenses were issued on March 12. No official word has come from representatives yet and there's no telling if chef Dennis Stover is still in the picture, having come on board well over a year ago.

The long-delayed Villains has had a few false starts, namely a "sneak peek" event that took place in March 2014 and a Twitter post dating back to June 25, 2014 that reads: "It's almost time!" Almost nine months later, it appears that tweet may finally be coming true. Stay tuned for more updates as they happen.
