Bizz Buzz!

We're getting a Five Guys Burgers And Fries here in Salem and I don't know why, but I'm a little excited. I try hard to steer clear of fast food, but after seeing multiple businesses leave Lancaster Dr, it's kind of refreshing to see one move in. The place looked very open when I drove by yesterday, so I stopped and went in. I was quickly greeted by an older gentleman (probably the owner) in a Five Guys t-shirt who promptly told me the grand opening wasn't until Wednesday. I said, "Okay, but yo mama told me differently last night." He stared at me straight-faced, unamused. I don't think he's aware that Yo Mama jokes NEVER get old. EVER. Sigh..

Another new business opened up downtown, and this place I'm truly excited about. It's called Clockworks Cafe and it's going to be a happening place once it gets its shit together. The interior design is fantastic, very clean and artistic with a town centre feel to it. Giant clocks on the walls and street lamp posts placed throughout really make it great, I love it. There's a lot to this place, I'll try and snap some better pics of the interior and post them in a later blog, but for now:

  1. uhh hell yes I'm excited about Five Guys! :D
    And as for clockworks, Hot Damn is that place the shit or what?!! I could almost vow that I'll never visit another coffee shop again. And when their classes and such start(which as far as I know are going to be free) It will quite possibly become my favorite place in all of Salem.

  4. We just got a Five Guys Burger place here in Natick, Ma that opened a month ago. Pretty good! I have only been once...found the experience to be quite nice. Loved the part when we had to tear the garbage apart looking for my daughters retainer....great first visit. We'll return when enough time has passed.
    The coffee shop looks cool.

  5. Being a french fry connoisseur, I'm looking forward to putting their fries through a taste test.

  6. That's the Pepper isn't it? I think I'm okay with this. I was afraid that it was going to be turned into something stupid.

  7. It is(was) the Pepper. And yes, they have truly turned the place into something spectacular. Better then the Pepper even. It's sooo not stupid!

  8. That's amazing. I really want to go check it out like right now. But it's closed and also it's raining so I can't just sit outside. Damn.
