New downtown Tempe eatery Ncounter is celebrating its grand opening this week. On Thursday Mayor Hugh Hallman kicked things off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the restaurant, 310 S. Mill Ave.

Friday, city employees can get a free coffee or fountain drink by showing their work I.D. badge.

On Saturday at 9 a.m. there will be a champagne toast at Ncounter to longtime Tempe resident and city employee Mary O'Connor, who died in January 2010 and was a champion of public transit in the area, followed by a party noon to 3 p.m. with DJ Josh on the patio before the ASU-USC game.

Ncounter and private nonprofit group Tempe Community Chest are teaming up to carry on O'Connor's legacy with a bus stop at 14th Street and Mill. Ncounter says 10 percent of the three-day sales will go towards the effort.

Ncounter serves breakfast and lunch seven days a week, and is owned and operated by the family behind the popular Mesa breakfast spot T.C. Eggington's: the daughters of Kathy and Thom Coker, Kyndal and Ashlee, and Ashlee’s husband Tysen Manuel, all ASU graduates.
