Just some odds and ends I noticed this week that I hadn’t blogged about yet.
Greg’s Grill in the Old Mill District is open for business. They’d been "coming soon" for quite awhile now, originally set to open last fall or something. I believe they’re a steakhouse; anyone tried it yet?
In the paper today, an article about Pilot Butte Drive-In changing hands. The new owners are longtime residents and have been working closely with the former owners, so everything should stay the same. Maybe they’ll bring back dinner, though!
Also in the paper this week, a blurb about Trader Joe’s breaking ground in their new location on the north end. I believe they estimated a Spring 2008 opening… only a year to go.
I blogged about the Oxford Hotel coming to town a while ago; the Bulletin had a new article on it this week, with a concept sketch. Construction is about to begin, and should last about 18 months. Should make a right mess of downtown at Minnesota and Lava Road.
Finally, Wildfire Brewing beer is now being served on tap at JC’s. Haven’t had a chance to try it yet; hope to soon.
