Booths from Ruth & Harry’s find new home at Caterina’s

May 21, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — A little piece of downtown Punxsy nostalgia is back, as Caterina’s Dolce Cucina owner Katie Laska has installed a few of the single-seat booths from the former Ruth & Harry’s Restaurant in her coffee shop.

The left-hand wall inside Caterina’s was once shared with Ruth & Harry’s, which closed in 1994 and was razed in the late 1990s. Hair Trends now occupies the space.

IUP has 2011 first Garden of the Month

May 21, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — As the first “Garden of the Month” for the summer of 2011, the recipient — the IUP Academy of Culinary Arts — probably has the most functional use of all gardens in town.

Some of the plants in the garden — cited for the month of May by the Punxsutawney Garden Club — are edible herbs, such as mint, sage, oregano, chives, thyme, peppers and others, that may be used in dishes prepared by culinary students.

“I want to know if the peppers are extremely hot,” said Richard Manslow, project director for Indiana University of Pennsylvania. “I’m dying to know.”
