Al Quick Stop/Facebook

— Popular Middle Eastern eatery and convenience store Al Quick Stop will open a second location. The restaurant announced the expansion on Facebook on Tuesday, but a representative was not yet ready to confirm to Eater where it will open just yet. Expect it to arrive in late 2019, and stay tuned for an address. [EaterWire]

— New cocktail bar One Armed Scissor has officially opened its doors at 208 Travis Street. The new watering hole from barman Michael Molina is now open at 3 p.m. daily, and serves interestingly-named cocktails like the Thai Dollar Sign, a mix of Citadelle gin, lemon juice, creme de cassis, and Thai basil.

— Well, this is weird: a Houston-area location of fast food chain Arby’s will soon start serving duck breast sandwiches alongside the usual roast beef. The location at 11233 Shadow Creek Parkway has been chosen as one of 16 restaurants to serve the sandwich, which involves seared duck breast topped with smoked cherry sauce and fried onions. The sandwich hits the menu on October 20, and will only be available in “very limited quantities.” [EaterWire]
