I got a sneak peek of Smashburger today. It was really good. Of the chain fast casual burger places in the area (e.g. 5 Guys, Elevation Burger) it’s the best. The best burger in town still goes to Wags though.

FSK Mall

I hadn’t been to the mall in awhile, but today I see that the last Hallmark store is moving into the old McDonald’s space, and the kitchenware store that had opened a few months ago is gone and that is an empty space.  The mall is almost a ghost town now….very few people shopping in there.  Very sad. 

Dominick’s Italian Kitchen Closed

I just learned that Dominick’s Italian Kitchen, located at 5227 Presidents Court, in Frederick, has closed its doors.

A huge disappointment to us, as we loved their gourmet pizzas, especially The Bronx, which was to die for.

Dominick’s location, tucked away in a small, out-of-the-way strip mall, did it no favors.
