The new Egg Harbor Marina is progressing nicely and will open May 1 but will not be completely finished until the middle of August. The launch ramp may be closed due to continued construction from time to time.
Lisa Van Laanen, who owns Sommer Stad in Egg Harbor has opened a new boutique just south of Shipwrecked on Hwy G. It is in an old blacksmith shop and is fittingly called Blacksmith Clothing Company. I have yet to check it out, but it is supposed to be a bit more upscale and young… I’m young, right? Young or not I, can’t wait to see it.
Ann Marie Kafka (John Henry’s sister… he owns John Henry’s) opened a sandwich shop in the Chocolate Chicken building called Whatcha Have?. There are a couple of tables, but mostly it is a to-go restaurant with hot dogs, hot and cold sandwiches, Gyros, salads… you name it. And the best part? Cheap, cheap, cheap! Her Miller Meal is a Chicago dog w/ choice of fries or chips & a Miller beer for 7.50. Take it to-go and eat it in the park next door… perfect.
Liberty Square has completely remodeled their interior… not that it needed it. It is really beautiful and the Bistro Bar and Grill offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and beginning Memorial weekend will serve until 10pm nightly. PS… Their caramel apple scones are to die for. They also have their Gourmet Grab-N-Go Deli– the name speaks for itself.
This weekend, I plan on taking a little tour of the village to be sure I am not missing something! Tonight though, Joe, our youngest scored some morels so I am going home to deep fry them. When I asked where he found them, he was like Facebook…ignore. My own son, keeping secrets from his mom!
