This week has been weird. Yesterday, my dog had surgery to amputate one of her back legs due to a congenital skin disorder. To say I’ve been nervous would be an understatement.
I had every intention of going out for Restaurant Week, but it just wasn’t in the cards for me. After we pick her up from the vet tonight, I probably won’t be leaving the house until next week.
With that said, it’s Restaurant Week! And since I haven’t been out, I figured I’d check in to see how everyone else has been enjoying it. Are there any places you think are worth checking out before it ends? What’s the best bang for your buck (quality wise)? Comment below or share on Facebook!
Also, did you hear Braeburn Tavern closed? Only two years on Broadway, and now they join the list of restaurants that simply couldn’t last. I’ll be honest, I never dined there, but I heard a lot of mixed reviews. I did see that if you have gift cards, you can use them at the Westport Yacht Club in Westport, NY. Hooray.
In other news, I’m sure you all saw the news that Common Roots Brewery in Glens Falls had a severe fire earlier this week and suffered from extensive damages. Luckily, no one was hurt, but the building is in bad shape.
Here’s the latest from their Facebook Page:
We are still in shock as we write you all this update.
As many of you know by now, a fire erupted in our brewery on Monday, March 25th, 2019. The structural damage to our brewery was devastating. While we are grateful that none our most cherished assets – our people – were physically harmed by the fire, much of our brewery, taproom, and second floor office space was destroyed or severely damaged.
Therefore our taproom and brewery at 58 Saratoga Ave will remain closed until further notice as we begin executing the necessary steps to rebuild. We are making every effort to support our employees through this time and are collectively driven to getting back to doing what we love as soon as possible.
So many emotions have consumed our hearts these past few days: sorrow, grief, anger, disbelief…. but also gratitude. Immense gratitude for the incredible showing of support we’ve received from our local and extended community. While we may not be responding individually to each of you at this time, please know that your kindness is noticed, your gesture is greatly appreciated, and we are deeply, deeply touched.
We are still working through the details and timeline of our rebuild. We know that we have a few tough months ahead. We also know that will come out of this stronger than we were before.
We will keep you all posted and look forward to serving you again soon.
Much love and gratitude,
Christian, Bert and the entire Weber Family
That’s all I’ve got for you today. I do have some fun things in the works, so stay tuned for what next month has in store.
Good luck to your dog, and praying for a speedy recovery! They are very resilient, but it is really hard to see them struggling, or in pain.
