Head out to Dick's Inn for cheap eats and a little nightlife. 


Formerly Piccola's Take Out, the restaurant has undergone major changes, including adding a stage and disco balls, `80s dance music and a 3-foot fish tank behind the bar. They've also added theme nights. Marilyn Monroe or Barbara Streisand could be sipping cosmopolitans next to you at the bar during Dick's Sunday Diva Show of drag queens from 5-7 p.m.

Afterward, the diva spotlight shines on customers for karaoke from 8 to midnight. On Wednesday nights at 7, customers get a chance to change what they have in their wallets. Ladonna's "Let's Make A Deal," named after the popular television game show, could send you home $20 richer, but not if you decide to take a chance on the wrong box and end up with a new rubber chicken. Phillips and Crowther opened Dick's Inn Jan. 21 after seeing success with their two-year-old Clayborn's Antiques store.

Phillips, head chef at Dick's Inn, says he and Crowther often ate out, giving them the desire to provide an economic alternative to costly bars and restaurants. At Dick's Mondays, a sub will only set you back $2, and no matter what the day, a slice of homemade cake is only $2.50. 1104 W. Main St. 353-3600. — Sarah Gregory
