Nothin’ like a good sweeping
Street sweepers deployed Monday in the East End to brush away winter’s leftover sand and debris from city streets and sidewalks. Work began on the side streets off Margin Street. Residents are asked to lend a hand by not parking cars on the street and sweeping sand and debris off their stretch of sidewalk into the street gutter. That being said, don’t sweep sand into piles or push debris into catch basins. Questions can be directed to the Department of Public Services at 978-536-7109.
Turning over an Orange Leaf
Peabody’s newest frozen yogurt shop held its grand opening celebration last Friday after opening its doors just over a month ago. Orange Leaf is located in the shopping plaza at 79 Lynnfield St., right next to Dunkin’ Donuts. Activities for the occasion included a raffle to benefit Haven from Hunger, a DJ to spin some tunes, a meet-and-greet with storybook characters, and of course, there was free fro yo. In the past year, four different frozen yogurt shops opened up across the city. As for the Orange Leaf chain, there are also locations in Salem, Danvers, Marblehead and Saugus.
A new look for a new century
The Century House, a Peabody dining institution on Route 114, recently remodeled its bar and tavern for a new look. Regular patrons had to go elsewhere for a week and a half; the main restaurant also closed for a day. The Linden Tavern was back open as of March 28 with new seating arrangements, new lighting and a new design for the bar. The management shared some pictures of the remodel via Facebook, and the feedback was all good.
“It’s so bright and airy! It’s lost its ‘Bar Grunge’ look! Cant wait to try it out!” replied one excited fan.
