    1. Exciting that SOMEthing will replace that former La Dolce Vita spot. It’s been so sad and empty for far too long now. Hubby and I were just saying how they need to put a lunch spot there.


  1. And heres my monthy rant against Routzahn’s. Just when i thought i had seen it all from the used car dealer of furniture, i was again reminded of the terrible marketing. Door to door employees sent to Frederick neighborhoods to pass out fliers of an “imediate disposal.” When is enough for these marketing 101 dropouts? There is no liquidation, no going out of business, no overstock and honestly, i doubt there is little current inventory on site. Just highly priced furniture that is marked down to still unreasonable prices in attempt to trick consumers into thinking they got a liquidation deal. Dont worry, ill be back next month when the wacky inflatable arm tubes are up in the parking lot.


  2. I was told that Routzahn’s is having this never-ending liquidation sale to empty their basement warehouse. Not because they are getting rid of floor merchandise or closing in any way. Seems like all the furniture stores in town are always liquidating stuff. I guess that is just normal marketing craziness for them.


  3. Are the downtown carriage rides operating this year? I have a friend coming to visit and really wanted to take her on the ghost walk but that shuts down the weekend before she arrives. So I was thinking the carriage ride would be fun.


    1. I would think on Frosty Friday (day after Thanksgiving) but was at Shab Row bistro last night and the shops on Shab row/everedy square were already lit up!
