And now for some more good news...

Just to balance all the closings news, my fellow blogger Suzanne Loudermilk over at In Good Taste reports that a new Jasmine Asian Bistro opened in Timonium Dec. 14.

And Rich tells me that on Preston Street, the former Sylvan Ice Cream, which has been closed for awhile, will soon open as Shapiro's Cafe, "which promises corned beef, falafel and sweets," he says, "quite a combination."
