With some final reviews under way, look for word soon of a surprise move by a nonprofit. Leasing is not 100 percent (or wasn’t at last report) but it pretty much looks like a done deal with the new site offering perhaps better exposure and foot traffic. We expected the final word later this week.
Pickin’ and grinnin’ time again: LCCL Strawberry Farm has opened — but not on a regular basis. Your best bet is to check the Facebook page before making the trip up Old Dalton Road in Armuchee. The farm was open Monday and briefly on Sunday. Upcoming hours will depend on the availability of berries. Also, the soft serve ice cream is coming probably later in the week. Also on the menu: Strawberry salsa (we’ll try it.). Click here
Crawfish time again on Broad Street: There are a few spots around Northwest Georgia that offer crawfish boils during the season but so far, Crawdaddy’s Cajun and Creole on Broad Street gets out vote. Starting last week and continuing each Wednesday (during the season), Crawdaddy’s is offering a mix of crawfish, shrimp, potatoes and corn. Prices vary depending on the size of your order. Closer to Acworth? Henry’s Louisana Grill also is doing Wednesday night “crawfish, crayfish, crawdads or mudbugs.”
That’s a lot of wings for a good cause: The folks at all the Jefferson’s restaurants together raised more than $40,000 to help with rebuilding and relief efforts in storm-struck Jacksonville, Ala., recently. You might recall the Jefferson’s in Rome not only sold special T-shirts but also pledged 10 percent of its sales that day to the cause. That’s community spirit. Speaking of which, Jacksonville State is back open following heavy damage from the F-3 tornado on March 19.
