WESTFIELD (CBS) — A new Friendly’s is opening up in Massachusetts next month – but it will be different from the restaurant many in the region have grown up knowing. “Friendly’s Café” is set to open in Westfield in early February. And unlike the traditional dine-in experience, customers won’t sit down and wait for a server to take their order. The counter at Friendly’s Cafe (Image credit: Friendly’s) “The new fast-casual service model provides guests the flexibility to order and pay at their own pace,” a spokesperson for Friendly’s said in a statement. “Upon entering the Friendly’s Café, guests will have the option of ordering directly at the counter or thru a QR code at their table where the food and ice cream will be delivered to them once ready.” The new location is 2,700 square feet, with seating for 45. One side of the building will have four parking spots reserved for curbside pickup.

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Open enrollment for health insurance provided through the state-run Maryland Health Connection has been extended until the end of February, Gov. Larry Hogan said Tuesday. The decision comes after a record 181,603 Marylanders enrolled for coverage for 2022, a 9% increase from last year, the governor’s office said.

According to the governor’s office, an additional 39,181 Marylanders enrolled for … [Read more...] about Hogan Extends Open Enrollment On Maryland Health Connection, Pledges Boosts In Health And Human Services Spending
0 Restaurants & Bars A pair of locations were cited with violations during the health department's first inspections of 2022 in the Manassas area. Liam Griffin , Patch Staff Posted Reply MANASSAS, VA — A pair of locations in Manassas were cited with violations during recent visits from the Prince William Health District. The Goddard School in Gainesville and the Omelette Cafe in Manassas were the first locations inspected by the health department this year. Though some coronavirus restrictions continue to fluctuate around the state, health inspectors are returning to conduct many restaurant inspections in person. However, some visits, such as those for training purposes, can be conducted virtually. Violations at restaurants typically focus on factors that can contribute to food contamination. The local health department can also perform a re-inspection to ensure that possible violations have been corrected.

Finally. The Second Avenue subway opened in New York City on Sunday, with thousands of riders flooding into its polished stations to witness a piece of history nearly a century in the making. They descended beneath the streets of the Upper East Side of Manhattan to board Q trains bound for Coney Island in Brooklyn. They cheered. Their eyes filled with tears. They snapped selfies in front of colorful mosaics lining the walls of the stations. It was the first day of 2017, and it felt like a new day for a city that for so long struggled to build this sorely needed subway line. In a rare display of unbridled optimism from hardened New Yorkers, they arrived with huge grins and wide eyes, taking in the bells and whistles at three new stations. “I was very choked up,” Betsy Morris, 70, said as she rode the first train to leave the 96th Street station, at noon. “How do you explain something that you never thought would happen? It’s going to change the way everybody lives as far as … [Read more...] about As Second Avenue Subway Opens, a Train Delay Ends in (Happy) Tears

Last week, the Food section published an article detailing, in hard numbers, how daunting the financial climate is for restaurateurs in New York. But Keith McNally , who has opened more restaurants than most, and kept most of them open, believes that money is only part of the equation. In many ways I’m sick of restaurants. Even so, on Tuesday I opened Augustine , my 14th in 36 years. The first was the Odeon in 1980, which I opened as a bit of a lark, something to fill in the time while I decided on my future. I’m 65 and still deciding on my future. The only thing I’m sure of is, I don’t want to sound like 65. Which is why I avoid saying what I believe: that restaurants were easier to build and a whole lot more fun in 1980 than they are today. In 1980, health and safety laws weren’t as stringent as they are now, and neither was the law protecting employees from sexual harassment. The first time I heard of a customer having an allergy was in the mid-’80s (the … [Read more...] about Opening a Restaurant Is Hell. So Here I Go Again.
