Shortly after they quietly unlocked the doors at 9151 First Street in Baroda , the new Public House was swamped and there’s been no let up thanks to stellar food and brew, first-class service, and a strong desire to be everyone’s favorite watering hole. Now, barely eight months after opening day, Chris and his team have broken ground once again on what will give them some serious new space to handle the crush of their popularity. Footings have been dug for an expansion that will essentially put a cover on their “beer garden” patio , extend it even further south-ward, and provide capacity for 90 additional patrons going forward. The original 10,000 square foot multi-purpose building which serves as not only the brew house for the burgeoning micro-brewery but also the kitchen, restaurant, bar, and even retail sales area for Round Barn Brewery & Public House, sports a nearly 2,000 square foot patio out front with a wrought iron fence. Structural steel to erect the roof enclosing the beer garden space is due in the first week of May and contractors will immediately raise the roof along the same pitch line as the main dining and bar area and extend it to the fence line. In decent weather, the space will be wide open to the outdoors with a roof and ceiling fans overhead, but when inclement weather strikes, the crew will simply roll down a series of new glass garage doors to close off the space providing that additional seating capacity for at least three-quarters of the year or more. The space will have HVAC provided according to Moersch to make it usable most of the time. The huge success of the Public House food service has evolved the menu from a simple pub menu to seated restaurant service and culinary offerings that have scored solid public acclaim and admiration. As a result, the Public House just completed the addition of a substantial new walk-in cooler for refrigerated food storage and a full prep-kitchen to supplement the kitchen where meals are cooked on site. With seating capacity at 70 on the inside and the new outdoor capacity topping 90, the restaurant and pub can handle sizable crowds in the summer season ahead and beyond. Chris tells me that the expansion should be complete by Memorial Day weekend , so let the parties begin. The Public House is open Monday through Thursday from 3pm until 10pm, Fridays and Saturdays from noon until 11pm, and Sundays from noon until 10pm.

Exactly where the relocated Dino’s Family Restaurant will land in South St. Joseph is still very much up in the air, but the man whose name is on the business is working hard to make it happen sooner rather than later. Dino Tripodis tells me that he is continuing to look at available land within a very tight radius of his long-time Niles Avenue home and has negotiations underway to acquire the perfect place for his restaurant following the final liquidation of his equipment at auction in mid-April. It was a bittersweet moment for the veteran restaurateur and his family when the auctioneer closed out the last of the gear to clear the building for demolition, paving the way for a new Buffalo Wild Wings Restaurant on that site at 2939 Niles Avenue in Southtown St. Joseph . But, Dino didn’t have much time to reminisce about the place as he continues to meet with construction engi-neers and architects to determine the best site and floorplan for a new facility. Tripodis himself offered up his building to a fellow restaurateur when he learned of the search for a Buffalo Wild Wings site. He and BWW developer Mike Jones of LaPorte, Indiana have known one another dating back to the time nearly 30 years ago that they both owned inde-pendent bars in LaPorte. Dino’s closed for business a month ago and the search process began in earnest, followed by negotiations for three potential sites to build a brand new facility. He tells me that he has been contacted by a number of people offering existing facilities throughout the region, but insists he prefers to build anew for his loyal clientele and in very close proximity to the old place. Dino’s Family Restaurant enjoyed a decade-long run at the Niles Avenue site MOODY Continued from page 1 www.MailMaxOnline.com Now Open for the Season! which now has a date with the wrecking ball so that Buffalo Wild Wings can open on schedule later this fall. To friends and family members, it was likely not a major surprise, however the good people who have owned and operated Passero’s Pizzeria in St. Joseph have announced to the world today that they have tossed their last crust . Mario & Melanie Abbott released the news to customers and fans on their Facebook page that they are now officially closed for business. The couple had sustained considerable health issues in recent months and decided that life is too short to keep battling in the marketplace at a time when they would like to experience their kids while they are still young. The restaurant, located at 2108 S. Cleveland Avenue alongside Family Video and across from Martin’s Super Market , had been a popular stop for many pizza fans in the region. Here is the statement that the Abbotts shared: It’s with mixed emotions that we tell you, our loyal customers, that as of today, April 22, 2014, Passeros Pizzeria will be closed for business. We know many people will be speculating on why, and that’s why we wanted to let you know our reasons. We have some health con-cerns, that have worried us, and our kids are growing up so fast, that we want to be able to spend more time with them, and enjoy them while they are still young. We have learned so much, and made so many new friends, from having this great establishment. And that’s part of the sadness for us. On the other hand, we’ve had some great opportunities come up, and are excited where the future will take us!! We assume that there will be questions about the space itself. As of MOODY Continued from page 9 Volume 15, Ver. 18 right now, no one is moving in that we know of, but the equipment is spoken for. Thank you all for the loyalty, and love that you’ve showed us!! We appreci-ate you very much! There was sadness and under-standing combined in the early responses to the Facebook post, many claiming Passero’s as their favorite pizza of all. The Abbott family owned the restaurant and operated it for about two and a half years as a family-run operation featuring made from scratch recipes, including sandwiches made on home-made sourdough bread.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at the corner of Lane & Morton Avenues in St. Joseph will bring the beloved potter’s creations back to town for their Spring Show & Sale. The semi-annual showing will take place Saturday, May 10th at the church just in time for an excellent line up of Mother’s Day gifts, upcoming spring and summer weddings, graduation day, birthdays, anniversaries, and even end-of-the-school year gifts for special teachers. Even gift certificates will be available in any amount during the sale. The hand-painted, under-glaze pottery is available in a broad array of patterns and various scenes including Nautical, Traditional, and Country with its many farm scenes. Hadley has even introduced a new line of children’s dishes featuring woodland creatures, and a new line of personalized girl and boy plates. Perhaps best of all, according to sale coordinator Peggy McAllister, St. Paul’s will offer in-stock items at 2006 prices, with an extensive stock of dinnerware, accessories, and decorative items available. Remember, too, that any item may be personalized with the name and/or date for a very special gift. Proceeds, as always, from the big sale continue to fund church and community projects at St. Paul’s as has been the case for more than fifty years now. If you’re unable to make the sale running that Saturday morning until noon, you can call Peggy at 983-5337 to arrange for selections at other times.<br /> <br /> Ron Kintup of St. Joseph elected a year ago to call his new business Lake Affect Appliance Service of St. Joseph.
