PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” A little piece of downtown Punxsy nostalgia is back, as Caterinaâ€™s Dolce Cucina owner Katie Laska has installed a few of the single-seat booths from the former Ruth & Harryâ€™s Restaurant in her coffee shop.
The left-hand wall inside Caterinaâ€™s was once shared with Ruth & Harryâ€™s, which closed in 1994 and was razed in the late 1990s. Hair Trends now occupies the space.
PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” As the first â€śGarden of the Monthâ€ť for the summer of 2011, the recipient â€” the IUP Academy of Culinary Arts â€” probably has the most functional use of all gardens in town.
Some of the plants in the garden â€” cited for the month of May by the Punxsutawney Garden Club â€” are edible herbs, such as mint, sage, oregano, chives, thyme, peppers and others, that may be used in dishes prepared by culinary students.
â€śI want to know if the peppers are extremely hot,â€ť said Richard Manslow, project director for Indiana University of Pennsylvania. â€śIâ€™m dying to know.â€ť
