Found a faboo local Italian restaurant that the Wookie and I have been haunting three weeks in a row for a weekend meal – Pasta Lorenzo – in Uniontown, about a half-hour drive away. The pizza is to DIE for and the Buffalo Chicken Alfredo will have you drooling… I am just thinking about it! And don’t get me started on the desserts!
Now I know most of you who read this might be wondering why I’m talking about a local place that most of you will probably never get to visit, much less get to dine at. But I want to try and remind everyone that when the economy takes a downturn it’s not such a bad idea to support your local businesses, and that includes restaurants. The big franchises can afford to take a loss and have their staff standing around; these little places can’t. And they employ local peeps as well as buying local merchandise and produce, so…
… next time you go out for a bite to each, why not check out some small local eatery and give them your hard-earned cash instead of some huge company that really doesn’t care if you’re there or not?
