Through their e-mail list today, Gregory’s Bistro announced a special three course dinner for April 16th and 17th in celebration of the end of tax season. The dinner will be by reservation only, so interested parties should call (972) 548-1920 to reserve a table. The menu is as follows:
First Course – Portobello mushroom cream soup or Curried duck breast with endive salad.
Second Course – Pecan crusted rack of lamb with blue cheese risotto and caramelized onion sauce or Grilled swordfish steak, gazpacho and topped with mango salsa.
Third Course – Chocolate clafoutis (cake) in a vanilla sauce or Grand Marnier macerated strawberries and fresh whipping cream
Dinner is $35, which doesn’t include tax or gratuity. Don’t forget that Gregory’s is BYOB (and there are two wineries on the square that offer good wine at good prices).
I stopped and got a picture of Infinity Arts Academy’s newly painted storefront. They also have a banner up annoucing a Grand Opening on April 17th and 18th.
I couldn’t help but grab this shot across the street from Infinity Arts Academy.
Spa Esoteric enjoyed Spa Week so well, they have extended it until the 25th. I had seen the announcement of Spa Week last week but you had to sign up with Dove’s site too get a list of participating spas so I didn’t follow up on it. Spa Esoteric has a good explanation of their offerings on their web site at http://www.spaesoteric.com/.
I also finally found the new home of Each and Every Detail. I had read in their blog that they had moved to 106 S. Church Street but I couldn’t seem to figure out where that was. That is the real reason I drove around the square so many times yesterday. I was looking for 106 S. Church. Since I was on foot this time, I sought it out again. I was really thrown off by AAA Insurance, the insurance company that faces out onto the parking lot next to Mitchell Park. Their address is 106A. To the right is the Harris Building. It has a Louisiana address. To the left is an alley and then businesses addressed onVirginia. I had finally begun to wonder if the whole business was an elaborate fiction that didn’t really exist. But why? So I walked down the square towards Cafe Malaga. I finally found it across the street from Spa Esoteric. They occupy the suite on the right.
I had accomplished all that I had set out to do, so I just took a stroll around taking pictures and looking in windows.
A Twist of Lime has another great window display.
There is an odd assortment of things in the window of the former storefront of One of a Kind and a sign saying to contact Stained Glass of McKinney if you are interested in any of them.
Do you remember me mentioning the garage sale signs in the window of the former site of Remember This Antique Mall in my March 31st post? Well, there’s a letter from the city okaying the garage sale and indicating that it WILL be in that building. This is across the street from Hamm’s Custom Meat Market and Main Street Magic & Fun Company. The garage sale will be April 16th & 17th and will help to send a kid to camp. For more information, call (972) 542-8830.
Churchill’s British Pub has a sign up saying that they are hiring wait staff and bartenders.
Alternative Furnishing has posted a sign for a 15% sale on all antique architectural items (like doors, etc.)
My Swanky Boutique is advertising a 30% sale for Friday 16th through Sunday the 18th on all Lucky brand clothing, jewelry and handbags.
I started on Mike Nichols “Balaam Gimble’s Gumption” last night after finishing “Fear Nothing” by Dean Koontz. The writing style is not that different from Koontz. So far, I am really enjoying the characters.
So that’s it from the square tonight.
Until next time,
