Scene This Week In...

Last Thursday was the vernal equinox which marks the first day of spring. It actually occurred at 5:58 AM. In Ellicott City, this means that Rita’s on Frederick Road is open again. Rita’s celebrates the first day of spring by giving away free Italian ices. The cooler weather last week did not deter folks from stopping in and welcoming them back.

Of course Columbia has a Rita’s too at Harper’s Choice Village Center. Soon it will be joined by a second one in the Kings Contrivance Village Center.

In Town Center, the harbinger of warmer weather was the workmen readying the outside tables for Clyde’s. Soon these tables will be filled with folks enjoying the lakefront. Until GGP’s master plan for Town Center gets underway the outdoor dining at the lakefront will have to suffice for a “vibrant” Town Center.
