During the warmer months, Billy Jack's Wing and Draft Shack and Jack Brown's Beer and Burger Joint acclimated to social distancing by offering seating in the parking lot across from Court Square. Now that the weather is cooling down, guests are dining in a new space.

The sister dining establishments are offering seating inside the former Laughing Dog Studios, between the two locations.

With cooperation from the Harrisonburg Community Development Department and Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, both businesses meet in the middle and have temporary use of the space together.

Laughing Dog Studios moved out of downtown at the end of August after 30 years and is operating from a home studio. The new space for Billy Jack's and Jack Brown's opened on Oct. 16.
