Sports Pub Opens In D'Iberville

South Mississippians now have a new place to kick back and do nothing but eat and breathe sports, which is what you would expect from D'Iberville's newest business called the Sports Pub.

"I love it. I think they done a fabulous job on it. It's outstanding. We needed something like that over here," said Red Seymour of D'Iberville.

"This is a great place for people to come and socialize and watch the game and enjoy a good meal," said Chip Landry of Biloxi.

Hundreds of people filled the facility- some with eyes glued to the showdown between the Seahawks and the Steelers, others in their own battles armed with a cue ball and a stick.

The place was designed to be a spot the entire family can enjoy.

"When Katrina come in and washed us out, we had 9 feet of water in here, and everything was lost. So, we just decided instead of having a 24-hour a day band-type thing, we're just gonna open up a sports pub, and open the restaurant and serve food in here," said owner Ed Miller.

But the opening of the Sports Pub is not just good for sports enthusiasts. It's providing jobs to people like chef Shawn Harrelson, who lost his job at the Grand in Biloxi due to Hurricane Katrina.

"It was hard finding a job. We don't have restaurants on the coast anymore. So I happened to come by here. I live in the area, I saw that they were opening up, so I came in and talked to them and thought it would be a good situation to bring something back to the coast," said Harrelson.

Owners believe it doesn't have to be Super Bowl Sunday to have a good time here.

They say you are welcome to come any day of the week from 6 a.m. to 2 a.m., and you just might run into this little jokester on your visit.

"Why did the chicken cross the road? Because he didn't have no wings,"said Elexis Bybee.

    Mississippi’s giant house party might not have the fanfare of 2016. But, it’s still a must visit event for families across the magnolia state. This year is not a political year in Mississippi. So, the political stumping is not nearly as significant as it can be. Yet, this Wednesday and Thursday, people will gather under the pavilion at Founders Square and listen to a series of speeches from Mississippi’s elected leaders.
