“We’re genuinely trying to provide even a lot more lifetime and electricity to Major Road,” Spires mentioned.
The electricity was bubbling above at Friday night’s grand opening as the pianists took requests, joked with the group, and led singalongs. Spontaneous dancing also broke out, just as it indeed did in the famous West Egg mansion of The Great Gatsby.
