Heard on Hertel
Still nothing official on the expected Dash's Hertel Avenue expansion, but I've heard from two sources now that plans will be submitted to City Hall soon.
I was also told the plan isn't in response to the Lexington co-op satellite that will be opening down the street. Instead, I was told, Dash's has wanted for a while now to build a signature store in Buffalo.
Remember the plan once talked about for Kenmore Avenue? The Kenmore store, of course, never happened. The Kenmore Avenue building is now a storage facility.
So Hertel would become the signature Buffalo store.
After I heard all this talk in City Hall, I stopped in the Hertel Avenue Dash's recently and was chatting with some employees, who told me the same thing.
Dancing in the dark
I was looking through the Council agenda for tomorrow and noticed more requests than normal for restaurant dance licenses:
*228 Franklin St., Mes Lounge
*732 Hertel Ave., Roaming Bisons Tavern
