PYTHIAN UPDATE—Three new food vendors have been added to Pythian Market: Central City BBQ, 14 Parishes and a second location of Ancora Pizzeria and Salumeria. These join the places that have already been announced as part of the market: Frenchcheeze, Squeezed and La Cocinita. There’s also 1908, a bar, which will sell grab-and-go frozen drinks among other boozy delights. Pythian is planning to add more food vendors before it opens early next year. [EW]

The brew is in stores this week. [GAMBIT]
