Barbecue in Dryden; water damage at Dryden Hotel

This week's Dryden Courier starts with a profile of a new restaurant in the Village of Dryden, the R&BBQ, which offers barbecue food in a Motown environment. The Courier looks over owner Chrystal Goodband's restaurant and Dryden sports background. I'll have to go try it!

There's also an article on the Dryden Hotel, which "will open again, but the timing is uncertain." The sprinkler system, designed to avoid a repeat of the 1993 fire, burst after a pipe froze on December 22nd. The wood paneling, bar, and mural are all damaged, and insurance inspectors are still making their calculations. They include a picture of part of the mural as it was.

There's also an article on the Dryden Grange exhibit currently at the Dryden Town Historical Society. Dryden sports get a brief mention as Megan Stuttle of Dryden took first place at the Southern Tier Invitational Indoor Track Meet last weekend, and there's a picture of Dryden sprinter Jason Pelletier.
