Bars and restaurants start to reopen

The loosening of restrictions have seen the reopening of some of the York area’s sit-down restaurants. The fast food places have been serving with their drive-through windows for quite a while now.

Chances “R” reopened for in house dining on Monday, June 1 and will also have their famous salad bar in the Hob Nob Lounge. It will be a little different though. Servers will be located behind the bar and will dish up whatever ingredients that you pick out and then your plate will be handed to you. The restaurant will resume daily and evening specials. Seating of course will be restricted according to the state restrictions.

The York Country Club is closed for dining this week and will reopen next Monday, June 9. Bar hours will be 11a.m. - 9p.m. and kitchen hours will be 5p.m.- 9p.m. according to restaurant manger Alisa Tennison.

The Offsides Lounge started with in-house dining this past week and will continue to serve drinks and meals in the future while following restrictions.

What it comes down to, you might want to give your favorite place to eat a call before going to ascertain what hours they are following and what restrictions they might have.

It will be good to get out and enjoy a meal that someone else makes.

Farmers Market to kick off June 18

All systems are go for York’s Farmers Market. The season will begin on Thursday, June 18 and York’s Kilgore Memorial Library will once again be the location. Local favorites and new vendors will be selling their homemade, handmade or homegrown items.

Vendor registrations are available at the chamber office. Stop in or call for yours! Enjoy fresh air and sunshine on Thursday nights from five to seven pm June through September.

What the Heck:

My bride has had the last couple of months off as she was furloughed from her job the last week in March. That time has come to an end as she got called back the end of last week and I’m no longer the only one getting up in the morning to head off to work.

It has kind of been a trial run for when retirement beckons but since I’m a year older I’m pretty sure that she shouldn’t retire until I do. (Don’t tell her that I said that)

Don’t know when that’s going to be but I’m a lot closer to the bottom of the mountain rather than the top. I can honestly say that I still enjoy my job (most of the time) and everyone tells me that you’ll just know one day when you wake up and you know that it’s time.

Right now, every day that I wake up and the feet hit the floor…..makes it a pretty good day.
