Rookies celebrates one year serving JB Charleston

By Senior Airman Dennis Sloan Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

The Rookies Sports Grill staff and Team Charleston patrons celebrated Rookies' one-year anniversary by hosting a party for Joint Base Charleston diners May 8, 2013, at JB Charleston - Air Base.

The celebration included a live band, hot dog eating contest and a buffet for service members, retirees and their families, to try out new menu options.

"We really wanted to show the community how much we appreciate them for supporting Rookies," said Jeff McClure, 628th Force Support Squadron Charleston Club manager. "We also wanted to showcase some of the new food items we have added to the menu."

Rookies now has a revamped menu with new specials, and some of the old customer favorites have been brought back.

"The fish hoagie and Rubin sandwich were a couple of specials we brought back to the menu as result of customers requesting them," said Sue Weeks, 628th FSS Charleston Club operation's manager. "We also added evening specials and a kids menu, so families have a wider range of items to choose from if they decide to come in for dinner."

The sports club features trivia nights, Bingo and several sports games and venues throughout the week. Their hours of operations are Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., Friday 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. and Saturday 4 to 10:30 p.m. For more information about Rookies Sports Grill call 963-3922.
