WestSide Story...

Honestly I never liked that movie...but I like making movie allusions in my titles. Well, onto the post...

Well, here's the rumor floating about on frederick.com's forums about the WestSide Cafe - "....so to all who enjoyed the good food and music.......get it while it lasts. The restaurant sold a week or so ago to some man who plans on turning it into a bistro. Of all things downtown Frederick does NOT need it's another sit down restaurant that will be empty most of the time. " - posted by francoise.

I will see what I can dig up about this, but it speaks volumes to me that the performance calendar at the WestSide's Web site is booked through this month, and then there's nothing in April. I will grant that owner Rod Deacey might not post a month in advance, but I would think that at least the first week would have performers listed.

If true, I will admit to being a bit disappointed that the WestSide Cafe will be moving on so quickly.

Has anyone heard anything more on this? I had lunch at West Side two weeks ago and it seemed business as usual. I'd hate to see them go.

Unfortunately I haven't had the time to follow up as I had planned, but I do intend to find out what's going on with the WSC.

Saw the show Saturday night as I always enjoy rock'n'blues, plenty of folks out too! asked about "the future" and heard there is still music being scheduled, more seats, and new menu. sounds good to me as service can be slooow during the day, there's not much to eat at night, and tix can cost more than I want to spend to see music i've never heard of . . . IMO Frederick does not need any more barhopping dives or pretentious over-priced sitdown restaurants. let's see what happens
