Get your green on

Niall Roche, a true-blue Irish lad from Wexford, and his wife Nikki, (New York-born) expect to open Irish Times Pub and Restaurant by the middle of June.
The venue at 14 Phila St., formerly O'Callaghans Fine Food and Spirit, was expected to open on St. Patrick's Day, Roche said, but the renovations got held up. The space is currently filled with sawhorses and tools and is roped off with yellow caution tape. However, from the looks of the bevy of muscled men in hard hats gettin' things done there this afternoon, it'll be ready to welcome thirsty patrons later this month as planned.
You can look forward to authentic fish and chips, Shepherd's Pie, a full bar with a fine Irish whiskey selection and a summer line-up of local and NYC bands.

According to a sign at 376 Broadway, Stacey's souvenir shop is moving to 439 Broadway and will reopen under new management as Elle CED.

Club Shadow is coming to 30 Caroline St., conveniently located across from The Saratogian's parking lot, so I can head there directly after work. Just kidding. I'm not really one for clubs, but I'm sure the crowds on Caroline Street will find it appealing. A phone number supplied on the sign in the window was not in operation -- guess you'll have to keep checking back for an update on when it opens.

Later this week, look in the print edition of The Saratogian for a full business article highlighting a new, green, home improvement store that just opened in the Mabee Building on Church Street. Apparently you can cover your walls with different colored natural clay mixtures instead of using smelly, toxic paint. The store also sells countertops that are made of recycled paper, which are as hard as a block of wood. Trust me. It is worth checking out.
