The Good News and the Bad

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

First of all, I would like to thank you all for reading my blog and making me a sortofkindofasubceleb, as even here in my new digs, people have heard of me before I meet them. Kind of nice for a person who has been a wanderer for decades, often far from native home.

The bad news is that both Sarah’s of Red Wing, MN and Slippery’s of Grouchy Old Men fame have closed and UPDATE is now re-opened. I am so sorry to see Sarah’s go down. She was the chef of Norton’s for years til a divorce from her Husker Du husband. Argh. I really enjoyed our time there. I hope someone can make it go forward again. Truly.

Then, Slippery’s on the Mississippi River in Wabasha went into foreclosure. I have heard that the previous owners who retired will purchase and re-open next year. Hope so.

The other bad news is that Coffee Mill Golf Club’s Cherokee Grille is closing for the winter.

The good news is that there is still Nosh, The Railhouse Grille, T-Bones, and a Tex Mex place in Wabasha, as well as the Flour Mill Pizza and Ice Cream Parlor. There are others, but I haven’t been there yet.

December is the worst month for alcohol related accidents, so remember when you think you have it under control…people don’t abuse drugs, drugs abuse people. Drugs have more power than we give them credit for! Be safe, stay sober.

And have a happy holiday!
