On Wednesday, Oct. 3, Rice Blvd. and Wireless Zone will open in the Gateway on the corner of Dorr Street and Secor Road.

Rice Blvd., a Japanese-style restaurant, will offer a 10 percent discount on all menu items through Wednesday, Oct. 31, for UT students, faculty and staff.

Wireless Zone, an independent Verizon Wireless store, will offer a 10 percent discount for UT students, faculty and staff through Wednesday, Oct. 10, on all accessories.

Rice Blvd. will feature Japanese-inspired cuisine such as sushi, rolls and bento boxes. Check out the menu. Owner Jun Park said he wants his customers to enjoy a great Japanese meal in his restaurant.

Wireless Zone will sell many of the same items that other Verizon Wireless stores sell: the new Apple iPhone 5 as well as other popular phones, tablets and more. Owner Frank Toma said he hopes to supply the communication needs of everyone that comes in his store.

A portion of the sales at Wireless Zone goes toward the Wireless Zone Foundation for Giving Inc., which donates money to a variety of charities and nonprofit organizations.
