The much-talked about shuffleboard club Royal Palms has reached a setback.

The opening is planned for September. A burger joint/comic book hang called Action Burger will open mid-September on Graham Avenue. Eater reports exciting news that Burg restaurant Traif will open a spinoff somewhere in the neighborhood, expected to open sometime in late September.
