Semi-annual Restaurant Update (9/25/16)

OK, I realize that very few people get out as much to eat as I do (but Real Estate has a way of taking me everywhere), so I see restaurant changes all the time where you might not notice it for 6 months or more.  Here is the best that I can do to keep things short since my last update…and it is a lot of info.

Now, I am sure that I missed something, and I apologize if I did.  Also, I am sure that you noticed that I am missing a couple of links.  Unfortunately I am still a one man team on updating the website and I am trying to add those places as soon as humanly possible.  Hopefully my next post will be a little more blogish and less dry, but now you have the skinny on things.
