HP)--Hideaway Pizza’s Enid location now is set to open at the end of January after construction delays. Company officials told Enid News and Eagle the Enid location will open Jan. 31 in the 2200 block of West Garriott, located in The District. The restaurant initially had been scheduled to open in the summer, but that launch date was pushed back because of supply-chain shipping issues. The 6,500-square-foot Enid location will include 224 seats, a full bar, a patio and curbside carry-out for online and call-in orders.

 

Construction on a planned movie theater tract has been on hold indefinitely soon after Enid city commissioners approved offering Apex Cinemas a $3.5 million tax rebate incentive in June 2020. Work has yet to begin again on the 7.5 acres. Also planned for The District, at Cleveland and Garriott is the new location for the Great Plains Bank, while both a Jiffy Trip and Colton’s Steakhouse have been open for business.

GM)--A longtime Enid school administrator and retired Air Force veteran will flip the switch next week to light the country’s largest fresh cut Christmas tree. Eisenhower Elementary School Principal Lyntel Murphy will be the Grand Lighting Marshal of the Christ Tree at the tree’s lighting ceremony near downtown during Enid Lights Up the Plains on Nov. 26. During the ceremony Murphy will switch on the 20,000 lights hanging from the 140-foot fir tree, which will also be decorated with 10,000 ornaments where it sits on Park Avenue between Grand and Independence. Kyle Williams, one of the major title sponsors of The One event series, said "Dr. Murphy was selected as the inaugural Grand Lighting Marshal because her life epitomizes a love of Christ and dedication to the service of others." Murphy has been an educator for 26 years. She became principal of Eisenhower in 2012, having retired from the Air Force in 1994 after 17 years of service. The kickoff ceremony will begin at 7:00 p.m. following the Christmas Lights parade around the downtown square. Fireworks will also shoot off at 7:30. The One event series will then run until Jan. 6, 2022, featuring dozens of Christmas-themed events such as concerts, markets and church services.
