T-Room gets major remodeling with new restaurants

Eric Imus, a Murray resident and employee of Thompson Tile, prepares to lay more tile inside the Thoroughbred Room (otherwise known as the T-Room) inside Murray State University’s Curris Center Wednesday in the spot that will be home to a new Mexican eatery, Tres Habaneros. Matt Whittenberg, senior project manager for MSU’s Department for Facilities Management, said the T-Room will soon also be home to Steak ‘n Shake and Sub Connection, a sandwich shop. Whittenberg said the renovations are currently slated for completion on Aug. 12, with the contract stating they must be finished by Aug. 29.
