HAGERSTOWN - The long-awaited Bulls & Bears restaurant officially opened for business Thursday at 38 S. Potomac St. in downtown Hagerstown. Bulls & Bears offers burgers, steaks and a wide variety of other American cuisine at an affordable price, general manager Stephen Kemmet said. A typical lunch, including tip, costs about $10. Kemmet said the owners of the 184-seat restaurant treated employees from local businesses to dinner earlier this week to give the staff a chance to settle in. "It was just a dry run," Kemmet said.

Bowman offers his vision of downtown HAGERSTOWN -- If the open-air feeling of the new "Potomac Walk" plaza inside 38 S. Potomac St. is reminiscent of Georgetown, New York, Paris or Las Vegas, that's because it was inspired by all four, developer Donald Bowman said Thursday. He said one of the reasons the project took so long is that every time he and his wife Jone went away, "we'd see something new and come back and ask the architect to try to incorporate it. " Two of the biggest influences were New York- and Paris-themed hotels in Las Vegas, which created the feeling of outdoor shopping and eating in indoor spaces, Bowman said.

Post-stadium strategy: Go with the arts To the editor: Although the multiuse stadium project is appearing less and less likely, Hagerstown should still continue to push forward with regard to a particular cultural direction: the arts.  Given that Hagerstown has established an arts and entertainment district and is home to the Barbara Ingram School for the Arts, the foundation has been put in place to build a lasting artistic environment....

It was called a “Cash Mob” and to better explain it, Erin Wolfe said to think of it as a “flash mob” without dancing. Several dozen people turned out at 28 South restaurant on South Potomac Street on Wednesday night in an attempt to pack a downtown restaurant on a weeknight and hopefully bring more people downtown, an area which organizers say has gotten a bad image despite its benefits. The Cash Mob was held at the restaurant from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. About 40 people had turned out at the eatery by about 6:30 p.m. for the effort, said Wolfe, the City of Hagerstown's spokeswoman who is also a member of the organization that was sponsoring the Cash Mob. 28 South was offering 5 percent off drinks or a free appetizer with the purchase of two entrees for the Cash Mob, said Wolfe.

Closed storefronts and empty parking spaces were common sights in downtown Hagerstown late Tuesday morning, as the lingering effects of the storm that once was Hurricane Sandy moved through the area. With many offices in the area closed, popular lunch spots such as the Brickyard Grill on West Washington Street and The Plum, a restaurant on Rochester Place, also were closed at 11 a.m. A light but steady rain and temperatures that hovered in the low 40s did not help. The Columbia Bank on West Washington Street and the post office on West Franklin Street were open.
