Costco in Dartmouth has a sign up saying that they will no longer sell tobacco products after August, at that location, Bayers Lake still will however
Fiasco on Brenton St closed this week, but the owners are stripping it to the studs and coming back with a whole new restaurant, Primal Kitchen. It will be casual with a focus on meat. The charcuterie will all be made in house and there is South African heritage so one of my favourites biltong will be on the menu. The kitchen will be open late and they will have craft beers aplenty. A great addition I think to the Spring Garden area.
