I had a feeling that once Drew Kerr left, Saratoga Snippets might be in trouble. Thankfully the idiot blog has some contacts, because without Drew and In the Biz in transition again hard to get info stuff to look forward to. Even if he maybe wrong on these, some of his scoops sound very interesting (especially The Bow Tie cinema)


Dan - The sale should make you nervous since the parent company of the Saratogian is owned by Randy Smith, one of the greatest distressed investors in the world. This could be a simple tax efficient transaction, or it could be part of a bigger consolidation across the company. Smith owns a lot of old media companies at this point, so it will be interesting to see how he turns them around.

Hey Dan,
We were able to track down the story about Russo's going into Brindisi's former location, here's the link: http://saratogian.com/articles/2012/01/27/news/doc4f22195d595d4083178949.txt

Glad something is going into the space, hopefully the food is good. Nothing was mentioned in the article, but either of these Russo's have any experience in the restaurant business? They made it clear that they have nothing to do with the Russo's in Amsterdam, so I'm just curious if they have any idea what they're doing, or if this guy just decided that he was a chef. There's already some pretty good Italian places in Saratoga, so they better offer something unique if they want to compete!
