Side Dish: Rust & Gold Celebrates 1 Year, New Pumpkin Beer, And More

CONGRATS: The Rust & Gold celebrated one year in business last Friday. The sports bar, which replaced Rookies at 345 Main St. in Huntington, has found success by elevating the classic sports bar theme. The only real similarity between the two bars is the TVs; the new owners changed the décor, menu, and atmosphere. The bar is known for serving up innovative cocktails as well as a unique selection of beers on tap. The sports bar also serves tailgate favorites like wings and a variety of sandwiches and burgers, making it a great place to watch football on a Thursday, Sunday or Monday night.
