A city says goodbye to a watering hole


Has anybody ever thought of putting together a real Salem High Hall of Fame?

Soul food

Do yourself a favor and go to the seventh-annual Salem Jazz and Soul Festival this weekend at Salem Willows.

The weather is supposed to be great tomorrow and Sunday, and this is one of the best events of the year. So, sit back and enjoy the music.

Did we mention it’s free?


If you had dinner reservations tonight at the Salem Diner, make other plans.

Salem State University bought the diner across from its central campus a few weeks ago but hasn’t been able to find anybody to run it, so it was shut down.

The diner will be preserved, but as of now, its fate is uncertain.

‘The Other Woman’

Hank Phillipi Ryan, the Boston TV investigative reporter, will be here Wednesday night to discuss her new mystery, “The Other Woman,” which won this year’s Mary Higgins Clark Award.

According to a press release, she is speaking at 7 p.m. at 115 Derby St. That’s all the release listed — just the address.

That address was a mystery to us until our crack investigative team looked it up and found out it’s The House of the Seven Gables.
