Yeah, it's latin/Caribbean/West Indian place on Northside rd and I guess you'd say it's next to the main rd up to Judith's. Simple sign hangs out front (or at least it did before Maria) with Chocolate BBQ on it.

Blue's is on the list.

Chicken shack has been up for a while.. not sure about A.T.C.

I went to Common Cents (at the tavern 1844 location) last night, food was good; though they are on a "just opened" menu so it's a bit limited.

I heard Duggan's sustained a lot of damage when a sailboat crashed into it.

I don't know about a sailboat but the pictures I saw posted somewhere of Duggan's after Maria showed what's looks like quite a it of major structural damage. It looked like it needed a tear down-rebuild to me.

Armstrong Ice Cream is OPEN.
Sign is missing and the place looks a wreak outside, but it's open, and the ice cream is as delicious as ever.

Duggan's needs to be rebuilt and didn't look like they started any demo yet when I drove by this week. I expect it will be many months, maybe a year before they re-open.

No signs of life at TLC kitchen either just saw their sign propped up again the wall by the front door. Did not notice any damage to the building though. Now that they presumably have power (Reefs does) perhaps they will open reopen soon.

Last we heard about Norma she was in Florida with health issues.

Sorry to hear. Hope both are up and running soon. Any eating recommendations for the East End? Zigglys has always been good but not sure of any other options.

Duggan's will NOT be taking the Galleon location.

The demolition of the old Duggan's has begun and they will rebuild.
