From local development to just plain news of the weird, here are your RocLinks for this past week…
A Moment of Silence
Sad news – Dominic Pane, proprietor of Mr. Dominic’s at the Lake, has passed away . I know I am sometimes hard on Charlotte, but Mr. Dominic’s has been a fixture in town for over 40 years. He will be missed.
BENRUS, a military-themed lifestyle brand (ok…) has opened its first retail store here in Rochester. Check it out over in the Culver Road Armory.
Since I get to pick the links, you get one to a review of the St. Vincent show that was at Water St. Music Hall a few nights ago. I think she (Annie Clark) is spectacular, and spoiler alert, the reviewers do too.
For the 18th year in a row, Wegmans is one of Fortune’s top companies to work for . They would probably have been on the list longer had it been started more than 18 years ago.
Flying Under the Radar
And finally, evading notice by just about anyone, the zoning board is reviewing a variance (PDF) this month for a 3-story, 60 unit apartment building on Monroe Ave at Union. The property is owned by Buckingham. If anyone has any details about this, I’d love to hear them.
As always, use the comments below as open discussion for anything in these links – or let us know if there’s a topic you’d like to see us hit more aggressively in future RocLinks. Have a great weekend!
