Ever since I was a kid, my parents had to bribe me to come inside for dinner. Being outside has always been a constant place for me. Even during a Mississippi summer, you can still find me sitting on my back patio with a string a' lights giving me just enough to read or play catch with my dogs.
Patio 45, which just opened in Columbus at 3255 Hwy 45., is a new restaurant in town that has that vibe.
Eurie Bordenclave, along with her brother and sister-in-law Kenny and Trynequa Blair, opened Patio 45 at the end of June hoping to give customers that outdoor escape people are always looking for.
"You can soak up the sun," Bordenclave said. "I want people to feel like they are right at home or even on vacation when you're in your own hometown."
Patio 45 is open Wednesday and Thursday 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. for lunch, 4:30-10 p.m. for dinner, Friday 11 a.m.-2 p.m. for lunch and 4:30 p.m. -- 1 a.m., Saturday 11 a.m. -- 1 a.m. and Sundays from 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
Bordenclave said renovations and changes are continuing for Patio 45, including attaching a plexi-glass roof for the seating area when it rains and a secluded outdoor area groups can reserve for graduations, family get-togethers and more.
Patio 45 offers a rotating menu with various seafood dishes, steak, hamburgers and more so be sure to stay up to date on Patio 45's Facebook page.
We've got businesses moving all over the place in Columbus.
America's Car-Mart moved to its new location at 3933 Hwy. 45 N. Car-Mart announced Columbus's new location on social media.
"We needed a bigger facility to better serve our customers with more quality, used vehicles," the post read. "It's awesome, and we're excited!"
Car-Mart was previously located at 2325 Hwy 45 N., which brings me to our next business move.
Action Auto, formerly located at 1516 Gardner Blvd., officially opened at its new location at Car-Mart's former spot, 2325 Hwy. 45.
Action Auto representative said it opened at the beginning of the month. Action Auto moved to increase its driveby traffic, the representative added.
Moving into Starkville, Katie Holtcamp has officially opened Dogwood Equine Connection, an outpatient equine therapy center, at 344 St. Matthews Road.
Holtcamp uses horses to work with client's anxiety, trauma, PTSD, depression and more with a variety of sessions, including grooming skills, trail riding and horsemanship. Holtcamp said each session is individual to the client's needs.
Holtcamp added she has been around horses her entire life and currently has 78 acres and eight horses for Dogwood Equine Connection.
"Equine therapy allows individuals to work on any type of wellness goal," Holtcamp said. "Horses are unbiased and accept people for who they are and where they are. Whether someone wants to work on mental, emotional or physical health, horses can accommodate when partnered with a credible instructor."
If you're interested in booking a session, have questions or want to learn more about the benefits of equine therapy, give Holtcamp a call at 662-312-3473 or check out dogwoodequineconnection.com.
