Biloxi Businesses Celebrate Permanent Pavement on Oak Street
Clear skies and paved roads welcomed two ribbon cuttings in east Biloxi today, celebrating the recent permanent paving on Oak Street.
The Biloxi Bay Chamber of Commerce hosted the ribbon cuttings, one at the Biloxi Lugger restaurant on Eighth Street and the other at Le Bakery on Oak Street.
The Biloxi Lugger had their grand opening back in January, while Le Bakery has severed pastries and other baked goods to locals since 2002.
Both businesses and locals alike are celebrating the fresh road that’s been nearly impassable for months.
Biloxi Lugger General Manager Lewis Allen said, “We’ve been through some tough times in the winter, but now that the road is paved, they just made the announcement about the casino next door. There’s a lot of exciting opportunities ahead for us, I think.”
Le Bakery Owner Sue Nguyen-Torjusen said, “We’re definitely grateful for the business that the chamber has drummed up, especially for this ribbon cutting and just part of Oak Street being open. Again, we are just grateful that it’s passable and not a mess to get here.”
Visitors to the Biloxi Lugger sampled some of the restaurants shrimp bread this morning. Guests at Le Bakery were treated to a celebratory dirt cake with the words “we dig our new roads!”
