Prohibition Station, 136 N. Main Ave., will be open for business with extended hours April 14. The taphouse featuring beers crafted by Vista’s Prohibition Brewing Company will open at 9 a.m. and close around 9 p.m. Sunday. Prohibition owner Kyle Adams said there won’t be any avocado-themed beers because that might taste weird, but there will be plenty of other original flavors on tap, like the chocolate and hazelnut-infused Nitro Stout. Guests are also welcome to bring outside food into the pub.

Harry’s Sports Bar and Grill, 125 S. Main Ave., will be open from 8-11 a.m. for breakfast and from 11 a.m. for lunch with a limited food menu available. Musical entertainment will be provided by a DJ starting around 11 a.m. With plenty of beers on tap and cocktails at the ready, the sports pub will also be showing the last round of the Masters golf tournament all day. Compared to last year’s turnout, Harry’s owner Scott Little said he is expecting nothing short of a big crowd.

“It’s going to be really busy this year,” he said.
