We drove past the old Remington’s in Holmdel at Route 9 and Route 520–it looks like something is happening there. Cars parked, the back door open, and I think the shubbery/trees cleaned up,
Ruby Palace on Route 35 in Holmdel still has a big dumpster in front filled with building debris, but it looks the same as it did last week. (I don’t know why I keep hoping something as good will end up there–it will probably become another freaking pizza joint.)
There is still nothing going on at Chicken Holiday in Matawan at Route 79 and Route 516. It went dark a week or so ago, and at some point the pickup truck from the front was driven away, and there is no notice or anything about its status.
