Another new restaurant is making plans for the Town Center area.
'Tis the season of restaurant debuts in Suwanee. Friends Grill already has been making preparations for a spring 2013 opening in the Town Center area.

"Admission" is showing at the Movie Tavern in Suwanee. For show times, click here. --- In this new romantic comedy, Tina Fey plays Portia Nathan, an up-tight, single, childless (maybe, maybe not!) admissions counselor at Princeton University. At the urging of a former college classmate, John Pressman (Paul Rudd), Portia travels to an alternative high school in New Hampshire to meet an outstanding student Jeremiah (Nat Wolff) who just may be the son she gave up when she was in college. John does everything right, while Portia, it seems, has done everything wrong. So now we have themes colliding: professional woman who wishes for children; the idyllic setting of a school where the students milk cows, make food and practically sweat honey; …
