Okay so I probably should have warned you guys that I was going on a mini-vacation last week to visit family in North Carolina, but what I didn’t expect was for two press releases to come out during that time with some pretty big news.
I also didn’t expect to get the flu, but that happened too.
Good news is, I’m feeling better today (after no food for 24 hours and a 14 hour drive home) AND, more importantly, I’m here to share the news with you. Well, that is if you haven’t already seen it.
For starters, I have new news on the Saratoga Stadium front.
The new restaurant will officially open this Saturday, April 2nd at 4pm. Not only will they be opening during the NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four games, but they’ll also be bringing more than just basketball on TVs to the grand opening celebration.
“The celebration will feature an appearance by former NBA superstar John Starks who rose to fame while playing for the New York Knicks in the 1990s. The event will also feature beer and pizza specials to enjoy while taking in the NCAA Final-Four Tournament Championship on the Saratoga Stadium’s brand-new TVs,” according to their press release.

In other news, we officially have word on who’s taking over the Mingle property on Lake Ave.
As I’ve been hearing rumors circulate in recent months, I didn’t want to post until I was positive, and now I am.
Mazzone Hospitality will be overseeing operations of a new restaurant at the old Mingle Restaurant location and is anticipated to open in late May.
“The restaurant, situated at the corner of Lake Avenue and Pavilion Place, will feature outdoor sidewalk dining at its ground floor location next to the main entrance of Pavilion Grand Hotel. Mazzone Hospitality’s newest addition to the region’s culinary scene is expected to open at 2 p.m. daily for light fair and cocktails with dinner service beginning at 5:30 p.m. The restaurant will open for Sunday dinner service at 3 p.m. Additionally, Mazzone Hospitality will provide high-end catering services to hotel guests, including in-suite entertaining and dining, rooftop event options as well as private wedding brunches and innovative package offerings for travelers,” according to a press release.

That’s it for now, but at the rate this city’s restaurant scene has been changing, I’m sure I’ll have more for you soon!
