BlogFood & DrinkGrub Notes

Closing + Misc.

So, of course, immediately after my review praising its Russian offerings, The Local Jam has announced its closing, set for July 1. The restaurant will be open over the weekend, though, so you can go get one last Jamrrito. Whether obscure alcohol restrictions are to blame, the slow summers in Athens or any number of other factors, it’s a real shame to see another local business shut its doors. Maybe someone else can take the large space and do something great with it.

Chipotle on Alps is open. People are excited.

The National is doing Friday wine tastings again, starting this Friday (June 29) at 5 p.m. For $18, you get tapas and three French whites. 

Phickles Pickles is running something called the Pickle Parlor out of the space between Professional Weightloss and One Main Financial at 100 Athenstown Blvd. Check Facebook for announcements about days, times and specials.
