The staff at Crossroads Hardware is getting tired of hearing the question: “When is 323 going to open?”
They don’t know the answer.
No one does.
Last May, “06880” reported that 323 — a new restaurant, on the site of the old Bogey’s — would open “soon.”
It’s been nearly 6 months. Despite near-constant activity, things still look like they did when Bogey’s closed — a victim of Hurricane Irene, in August 2011.
At this rate, they may be shooting for a target date of March 23, 2013.
You know: 3/23.
My spouse & I ran into the owner (who we didn’t know) by chance at a restaurant and overheard his conversation with one of his friends who is also working on the “fix up”.
I asked “did you run out of money” the answer was no. They ran into many more problems than they anticipated. Didn’t have a specific opening date still but hoped to be ready for the holiday season.
Generously bought my spouse & I an after dinner drink. :o).
