New Firehouse coming

Firehouse Subs will open its eighth Charlotte-area restaurant Feb. 8, and will have a grand opening with the Steele Creek Volunteer Fire Department on Feb. 9, with free drinks from noon to 2 p.m. and the fire department showing off antique firefighting memorabilia and the new mural dedicated to them. Each Firehouse Subs restaurant gets a hand-painted, custom mural in the dining room; this one illustrates Steele Creek’s Engine No. 2 and the Central Steele Creek Presbyterian Church. (The chain also has a public safety foundation that supports first responders and public safety organizations, and says it's given more than $436,000 in North Carolina.) 12806 S. Tryon St.
