Cavalcade of News: Sarah's Pastries Closing, Trotter's May Let His Hair...Up, Three Floyds Cuts You Off at Two
Lots and lots of news, including vacations for some local places and who knows what all. First item: Sarah's Pastries and Candies, which was going to have to move from its Oak Street location as the building was redeveloped, has decided to shut down entirely. Owner Sarah Levy won a cake challenge on the Food Network and is one of those Levys, so we suspect there are more and bigger things ahead. Plus, she defeated Natalie Zarzour, so she's truly invincible.
