How is Dunkin Donuts coming along?

Miscellaneous discussions. Things that don't have anything to do with Western, Leatherneck Athletics, college sports in general, etc.

on the flipside, Petey's in Monmouth and maybe Barnstormer (same owner) are closing. In Galesburg, long-time BBQ spot Rib Shack is also closing down.
Back in the day, when my Dad took the family to either Rib Shack or even Harbor Lights next door once in a while, we thought we were living high off the hog. As a youngster, to get some melba toasts and butter tray before your salad showed up was an event to salivate over. :lol:

Streaks hoops coach John Theil would have some post-game chats from the bar at Harbor Lights. But wasn't the WGIL post-game show broadcast from the Huddle Inn?

As they say in France, il m'échappe. Yep, the old gray mare just ain't what she used to be.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

The Cerars (owners of Petey's and Barnstormer in Monmouth) have also closed The Packing House in Galesburg.

Macomb Dining Company may be coming back. If it pans out, we may again have yummy cinnamon rolls once again in Macomb!

I was in the union this morning and noticed that the wall that was blocking Chick F Ila was gone and and the menu screen was up so does this mean it could actually be open this semester.

Last I heard (a few weeks ago), they were supposed to open last Monday, but it doesn't look like that happened. Probably sometime this week, I'd guess.

Anybody know if Papa Johns is ever coming back like originally reported? They were a personal favorite (ducks for cover), and I've been waiting for some news on it for a bit.

I haven't heard anything locally, but I have heard that the company is struggling nationally. I don't know if the locations are franchises or not and what effect that might have on the likelihood of it reopening though.
