What do you do when one of your favorite places closes?  

Find another!

During the hyper-local post challenge, I wrote a post about Chester's Legacy Tavern - Painesville, Ohio a place I truly enjoy and have been to many times.

Two weeks ago, my cousin came out to Fairport Harbor for the first time.  We were looking for a vanity and I wanted her to check out a few at Active Plumbing Supply.

After we shopped at Active, we went around the corner to Chester's.  It was about 12:15 and the parking lot was empty.  Normally you can't find a place to park.  I noticed there was a sign on the window:

**********

THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR FAITHFUL CUSTOMERS FOR STICKING WITH US DURING OUR TOUGH TIMES.

CHESTER'S IS CLOSED.

**********

Believe me, I was shocked.  It was one of my favorite places, the food was excellent as was the service, and it is the only restaurant I know in the neighborhood.

Now what?

When I was in Fort Lauderdale visiting Tony and Tim, they mentioned the Sunset Bar and Grille at the Marina.

We decided to give it a try.

I did not take this photo, but the restaurant is such a wonderful find.

We sat out on the deck since it was such a beautiful day.  The sun was shining and there was a wonderful breeze. My cousin said she felt like she was in Nantucket, not Fairport Harbor, Ohio.

Food and service were superb and the afternoon was delightful.

If you're a local and you haven't been there yet, give it a try, I highly recommend it.

Yes, I will miss Chester's, but I'm so glad I found the Sunset Bar and Grille.

This is where I headed last night, to watch the fireworks that never took place.  I was sitting at a picnic table up on the hill...............great view of that gorgeous sunset I posted earlier today. 

I was just ready for bed................

Roger: That happened a lot during the bad days. Thank heaven that trend is over. There are several new places opening and that is good for us all.

Roger, As you know in NYC they come and go. I was upset when my favorite neighborhood Chinese restaurant Ollies closed. But now I love the new place 5 Napkin Burger and guess what? Ollies To Go opened a few blocks away. I'ts much smaller with only a few seats -mostly take-out but the food is even better. One door closes a new one opens!

It did happen more then Evelyn, but it will always happen and we'll always be looking for new places.

For sure Mitchell, they come and go in NYC.  Glad to hear you like the new burger place and Ollie's opened a few doors down, so cool.  Check out my post today Mitchell about a NYC meet-up on July 31st.

Sorry to hear that, Roger.  It's so nice when you find that "one" place that is comfortable.  We have one here too.  I'm nervous now.  8-)

Do you need to "shake it up" or start from scratch?
