About 30 downtown business owners pleaded with town officials to keep their businesses afloat while the new drainage pipes are laid along Atlantic Avenue.
The contractor installing the new water drainage pipes beneath the streets of downtown Marblehead compared the project Monday night to a 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle. That characterization did not reassure the 30 business owners and managers who attended a briefing by the Town Administrator, the fire and police chiefs, the water and sewer commission and the contractor. The business owners came asking for help from the town and the contractor to keep the streets open during the critical summer months so their customers can find a place to park and shop. They learned during the briefing that there may be some days when the project turns off the water to nearby businesses and homes. Mark Cardillo, vice president of J.P. Cardillo & Sons of …

The Board of Selectmen recently awarded a full liquor license to Marblehead's Casa Corona restaurant.
For the owners of Casa Corona, the road to a full liquor license was a long one. At a meeting at Abbot Hall earlier this month, the Marblehead Board of Selectmen unanimously approved awarding a full liquor license to the owners of the Smith Street Mexican restaurant, which opened last fall. The restaurant is expected to begin serving alcohol sometime next month. Unable to secure a local liquor license when they first opened, owners Felix and Jose Bracamontes applied for and eventually received the town's first ever BYOB liquor license. Have you been to Casa Corona since they opened? Are you glad they now have a full liquor license? Let us know in the comments section below.
