Acquiring Bubbles was actually by accident on eBay. After placing a bid in the auction, the ladies didn’t realize that the trailer was full of gaping holes. Or that the owner lives on a middle-of-nowhere ranch in Ohio. Continue reading →
We discussed Taverna Pizeria and Rissoteria moving a mere few city streets away to Knox some time ago, but the actual transition from one restaurant to the other took a record breaking 36 hours.
