Hey Red Stickers! We have quite a few things to look forward to in 2013. Here is a list of 13 establishments slated to open their doors and cater to your every whim this year! Who said 13 was an unlucky number?  
1.  The Pelican House should open its doors in February. It is billed as a New Orleans style bar and features a huge variety of beers on tap as well as a comprehensive whiskey selection.  A little birdie told DBG the menu is quite yummy too. http://thepelicanbar.com/
2. City Pork Deli and Charcuterie will open near the Perkins Road Overpass.  The world can never have enough homemade sausages, patés, terrines, cheeses and freshly made sandwiches. 
3. Street Breads Sandwich Shop is a Lake Charles favorite that is about to pitch a tent by the Perkins Road Overpass. The hope to be selling their delicious sandwiches by St. Paddy’s Day.  http://www.streetbreads.com/
