    Well, this is encouraging: new blood, new menu.

    Let’s hope that besides “possessing…communication,” the new chef helps to deliver better grub.

    The fact that Peter is casting about for a “creative chef” is a positive sign. The fact that he’s doing it on Craigslist isn’t.

    Homer, utterly off-topic, but the dog store, ROWF, at the SE corner of Hicks and Middagh has a sign in its window announcing a closing sale.

    Store’s been in biz for awhile. Of interest for BHB?

    Moving sale, not closing … or so says the window

  • AEB

    Well, relocating–no, Cranberry? Which is closing.

  • AEB

    …at that location.

    Hate to see a business fail in the nabe, especially one that had as dedicated an ownership as ROWF, but they did face a lot of competition. AEB, here’s our golden opportunity to open a niche-carving space that will meet all the demands and needs of the BHB posters (notice I didn’t say poseurs) Whadyathink? Taco stand? Fish store? Bakery?

    All, nabe. Plus adult “boutique” with lurid neon sign in the shape of a boa….
