Third St., Little Rock, and has expanded its Blue Canoe taproom into the 1,500-square-foot space. Marketing coordinator Carrie Mellinger says the new, bigger taproom will continue to serve TBB's appetizers and Blue Canoe-beer-infused street tacos, adding a few burgers, sandwiches, quesadillas and nachos; the Sunday brunch menu will expand to include egg plates, fruit plates, a breakfast quesadilla and a "hangover burrito." They're also adding games -- shuffleboard, darts and, still en route, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arcade game. Taproom hours will now be 4-10 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, 4-11 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday. And on the first Tuesday of every month, Rock City Rescue will have dogs available for adoption. The phone number is (501) 492-9378.
