By month’s end, the Jester’s Court game shop will have a new home on Main Street and a new name to boot.
According to the business’ Facebook page, Jester’s Court will move from its current location at 518 Colorado Ave. in either the third or fourth week of August to 623 Main St., between the Avalon Theatre and Quincy’s bar. Once there it will change its name to Board Fox Games and Coffee.
The Facebook post, dated July 30, notes that Main Street is a better location for the business and that Fox is a family name that means a lot to the owners. It also says the store currently gets a lot of calls from people thinking it’s the Mesa County Courthouse, which is “annoying.”
The owners will continue to notify customers of updates, but said that renovations are ongoing and the new site must get inspected by the city prior to the move.
■ Pinnacle Venue Services is adding local shops to its current Dinner and a Movie discounted movie ticket program, meaning that downtown’s Avalon Theatre will now accept receipts from local shops to apply toward free tickets to Tuesday night movies.
Patrons can shop and/or eat downtown anytime on a Tuesday and bring the receipt to the box office and receive a free ticket to the movies that evening. Every $5 spent can turn into one free movie ticket. Receipts must be from the same day and the program only applies to Tuesday evening’s show.
“It’s a priority for us to support the local business community,” Maria Rainsdon, general manager of the Two Rivers Convention Center, Avalon Theatre and the Amphitheater at Las Colonias Park, said in a press release. “Our events are bringing people downtown and this program is just one way we can help drive folks to local businesses and help with economic impact.”
A list of upcoming movies at the Avalon can be found on the Avalon Theatre Facebook page or at tworiversconvention.com/events.
