Hey Singer Island and North Palm Beach residents, good news! There's a new draft house in the heart of North Palm and it's going to be your new favorite spot. 

The Draft House Bar & Grille opened a little less than a month ago and it's already buzzing every night of the week. That's partly because it was opened by Randy Epstein, who ran the North Palm Beach Country Club restaurant until it closed for renovation in April.

Local resident, Matt Lerer, caught a pretty cool video of some tarpon chasing a mullet run on Friday. Tarpon are sought-after game fish for avid anglers, and while they're not good to eat, they still put up a good fight and are fun to catch and release. While peak tarpon season is during the summertime, you can spot the tarpon chasing large schools of mullet well into fall. 

Lerer's video shows a huge school of mullet with quite a few large tarpon hunting for some lunch. Check it out on the news here: https://www.wpbf.com/article/drone-video-shows-sharks-large-school-of-fish/23143244.
