Some of the stuff they’ve got coming on draft? Bell’s Expedition Stout, Cazeau Saison, Weihenstephaner Dunkel, Blaugies Biere Darbyste, Ballast Point Scuplin (get there for this one, seriously), and Dark Horse Tres Blueberry Stout. Sounds like a solid upcoming line-up.

Plaza Bistro will be having jazz every Friday from 6-9pm with Frankie Bell.
From a friend, Wegmans just installed a self-checkout. This marks a turn from their previous philosophy and started trial runs in their New York stores last year around this time. Cell photo below:
