the cheese place is leaving? That totally sucks, we used to go there all the time. Anyone know why they folded? It seemed like there were always people inside when I went and their lease couldn't have been that expensive.

It will probably be replaced by a pharmacy or an Irish pub.

Re: Cheese
Michael wanted to spend more time with his family and is pursuing other opportunities. He is currently looking for a buyer for the shop as a "cheese shop." I hope to see it continue!

Michael did want to spend more time with his new family. As you know running an upstart business (even a small cheese shop) requires a lot of time and dedication. Michael indicated that his heart just wasn't in it anymore. But he's a great guy and we wished him the best of luck. His business was awesome and hopefully someone will buy it - ANY TAKERS?

Hopefully someone buys the cheese shop and keeps it running. I still have $10 on a gift card that I was going to use before they closed. Too bad they closed a week before they were planning on it.

Treat yourself and have a 'wiz with' at Joeys. Best cheesesteak anywhere around here and much better than Pat's or Geno's. Get a side of the fries to finish it off

Joey's seems to have strange hours. It's like they are hardly ever open when I want to eat there! But it is a quality place.

Best Mexican would be Los Mariachis on Gay Street. Very authentic and reasonable prices.
