Watertown's dining experience got a little better yet with the opening of the new Partridge Berry Inn on Route 3 east of the city. New owners and a total makeover of the forty year old facility is getting rave reviews so far and with other new restaurants ensures quite a selection of local eateries.
I stopped over at the open house at the new Comfort Inn (formerly Days Inn) and was impressed at the complete makeover. Along with three other hotels planned for the west side of town, the need for rooms is being met. Watertown has developed a shortage of rooms in recent years, with much of it related to activities at Fort Drum.
There continues to be brisk economic activity in many areas, despite recent setbacks with a couple of plant closures and the rocky situation at Mercy Healthcare.
Speaking of Mercy, I am up early to head over to TV 7 for an interview with Jeff about that situation.
Oh and don't forget the Octoberfest in September in downtown Watertown on Saturday....lots of activities including an antique car show.
