WILLIAMSON, W.Va. – A ribbon cutting ceremony took place November 4 at the Vinson Street Community Cafe and Arcade.
Rick Wilkerson who owns the business is hoping this facility will be able to prosper and give people a place to go to have a good time without worrying about bad stuff that may be going on around them or in the community.
The building is being leased from the Willliamson Housing Authority (WHA).
The director of the (WHA) Pauline Sturgill, said “Rick is very excited and he has worked for months to be able to turn this building back into something for the community.”
The Vinson Street Community Cafe and Arcade is open from 11:00 a.m to 11:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
They offer a variety of food including burgers, fries, hot dogs and wings. A daily lunch special will also be available.
There are five arcade games set up, two pool tables and a dart board.
In the future Wilkerson hopes to host cornhole games and other outdoor events.
Sometime during the month of November the cafe will be offering a free Thanksgiving Dinner.
