Little Giants bigger sister, the 70-seat Tipsy Parson, is expected to open at the end of September, co-owner Tasha Garcia Gibson told Fork in the Road. She has some choice words natch for building inspectors: There have been so few new construction starts in the city, and to legitimize their jobs, a lot of inspectors will slow things down, find a lot of violations they wouldnt have in the past. That said, the Tipsy Parson is well on its way. West Side, get ready for your very own version of Egg.

Liquor License? Check, from the booze-easy CB4.
Comfort Food? Check. Its going to be American regional with a little bit of emphasis on southern regional classics ... If your mom made it with Velveeta, well make it with Grafton cheddar.
Fried stuff? Check. There will be a lot of boiling, grilling, and frying. Were dying to fry weve got a list of all the things we can throw in a fryer, like beignets, doughnuts, and hush puppies. We also may try pickles.
Mexican Brunch? Check. Were definitely going to have nods to my Mexican heritage like on the brunch menu, therell be a Mexican-style chorizo. Well also have pimento cheese, which is from my familys beach tradition.
Pork? Check. There will always be pig.
