Today is National Martini Day and one of downtown Flint's restaurants will take full advantage.

501 Bar & Grill will host a formal grand reopening today. The restaurant has been undergoing a renovation since the owners announced they would take over the space of neighboring Wizeguys Pizza in late March. The closing of Wizeguys made way for 501 to expand with additional seating, a lounge area, and group sofa with low cocktail tables.

The grand reopening will feature items from the new menu that includes a Chicken & Waffles dish said to be a hit among patrons of 501. Since it coincides with National Martini Day, the restaurant will also feature $5 martinis as well as other drink specials. The beer selection has also expanded with many made-in-Michigan brews.

The grand reopening takes place from 6-9 p.m.

What will you like best about the expansion? The menu? More seating?
