Vandalism on Warren Street Someone went on a rampage last night, overturning planters in the 200 and 300 blocks of Warren Street. Many of the objects of assault were the whiskey barrel planters placed on the street by the Beautification Committee a few years ago, but private property was not spared. One of the large cast iron urns in front of 242 Warren Street was pushed over, and--most destructive--one of the large ceramic pots flanking the entrance to 232 Warren Street was knocked over and smashed.
203 Warren Street Around Winter Walk time, word was received that the owner of the convenience store at the corner of Second and Warren was planning to open a Family Dollar store in the adjoining storefront, where Tomm Eaton used to have his real estate office. That doesn't seem to be the plan anymore. Spotted over the weekend: a small sign that reads "D. Taylor Hair Studio" propped in the window and a hairdryer and salon chair inside. It seems that Danny Taylor is opening his hair salon again, in yet another location.
Moxie's/Maxie's There's going to be a restaurant on South Front Street again. The building that was once Moxie's and later the ill-fated Maxie's was purchased last summer by Peter Schram and recently sold to Andy King. The word from reliable sources is that the building is being renovated to reopen as a restaurant once again.
I heard the new restaurant will be decorated in a nautical theme and serve American style cuisine.
And I'm glad Danny T. is back (I've been getting my haircut in his dining room). But what is an "adjourning storefront"?ReplyDelete
Peter--Obviously a blooper for someone's collection. A short-lived one, though, because I corrected it.ReplyDelete
I'm glad Moxie's will be open again, it seemed like a steal and it will be good to see some activity on Front Street.ReplyDelete
Cannot wait for Andy King to disply his creative skills with food! He is fantstic and suave! Wendy McDarisReplyDelete
Peter: Obviously, an "adjourning storefront" is one that is located in a building that is about to be torn down! Quick! Preservation Commission to the rescue! --EllenReplyDelete
