  2. The Reunion restaurant on West Patrick Street (site of the former Jennifer’s and later Mick’s) has closed. There is a “coming soon” sign for something called Le Parc Bistro, which is supposed to be French. There are also signs for a new restaurant in the old Griff’s Landing space, as well as place called Rex’s Downtown Grill at 57 East Patrick Street.


  3. I wrote to the Chili’s restaurant HQ and go this reply:

    December 8, 2014

    Thank you very much for taking the time to send us an email and your interest in Chili’s. Our new Frederick, MD location is scheduled to be open by June 15, 2016. We do not have an exact date for you as construction schedules can vary due to unforeseen circumstances.

    We again thank you for your interest in Chili’s and we will look forward to your future visit to our new restaurant. It will be our pleasure to serve you!

  4. Does anyone have a recommendation for a roofer. I have a flat roof on a garage that needs to be replaced and I’d like to hear experiences, good or bad. Thanks.


  5. I had a slate roof and I always had Hartman do repairs, finally last year we had them replace our roof with a metal roof and I think they did a good job. I’ve never had a complaint with them.


    • John, a bit late with a reply here, but when we lived in Middletown, we used J&K Trash Service — loved ’em, and good prices, far better than Waste Management we had for years. Not sure what J&K’s service area is.


  6. Wendy’s on Route 85 is now Closed as of last Sunday. I heard through the Grapevine that there lease was up and they did not pay to renew. I do not know for sure, but I heard it will be torn town….If so, it is a good thing for that structure that has been there forever and has who knows crawling around in it!!
