Hey peeps! I hope none of you are experiencing a post Super Bowl hangover or revenge from too many chips, hot wings and pizza!
So, time to get to the subject at hand – what’s up around town?
Emails are flying about Presidential candidate Rick Santorum, who will be in town on Wednesday, Feb. 8 and may stop by the Starbucks in Adriatica, from 9-9:30 a.m. Apparently Santorum is speaking to a group of pastors at the Bella Donna Chapel in Adriatica. Admittance to the chapel is by invitation only. Outside, there will be a TV showing his presentation where everyone is welcome to attend. It will also be streaming live from the Bella Donna Chapel facebook page.
On February 8, from 7:00-8:30 p.m. Santorum will be at a rally for the public at Fairview Farms, 3314 N Central, Plano.
Rumor has it that the H-E-B grocery store chain is coming to town and will be somewhere in the vicinity of Lake Forest and Hwy. 380. My own experience with H-E-B stores in other parts of Texas has always been favorable, although I prefer the baked goods and meat from their Central Market division. Great customer service is part of their trademark. When I’m able to confirm, you, readers, will be the first to know – or maybe the second.
MOOYAH Burger, Fries and Shakes restaurant, which showcases the leading better burger brand’s latest menu and design, will be coming to the west side of McKinney in March. The restaurant will be located at 3201 El Dorado Pkwy on the corner of El Dorado Parkway and Hardin Boulevard. Moo.
Scooters, the new coffee company in the space formerly occupied by Saxby’s, has opened their drive through window. The interior, for coffee lovers who like to meet and greet, should open sometime in March.
Updated 2/7/12 — Palio’s Pizza Cafe is NOT moving into the location where Cadillac Pizza was housed on S. Kentucky St in downtown McKinney. Please see the comment from Cadillac Pizza owner in the comments below.
Kirkland’s, known for home decor and gift items, is leaving McKinney soon – this could be the last week that they are open. Located at 2851 Craig Drive, you might want to run by and see if they have any terrific bargains. Yeah, right?
Did I mention coffee? Word around the square is that another new coffee show is brewing next door to La Misha, on the south side. More details to come.
Well peeps, guess that’s all my news for this edition. Have a most excellent week.
Till next time,
