Maggie Hinson
, owner of Midtown Billiards, the late-night burger, billiards and bottle-toss establishment, says the restoration of the fire-damaged venue at 1316 Main St. is progressing and she hopes she can open by the first of June. She’s waiting on her draft boxes and refrigerators and the city’s inspectors to check out the bathroom.

To recreate Midtown’s ambiance, Hinson said she plans to give everyone a Sharpie pen on the bar’s opening night “so they can mark their territory.” Midtown, which has a 5 a.m. liquor license, is a favorite with night owls and service industry workers who pile in after their shifts are over for big ol' juicy hamburgers.
