Looks Like Olives Really Will Reopen

By

It's sometimes depressing to track the soap opera that is the life of Todd English, and so we're pleased to note some happy news: Olives is on track to reopen! (We think.) Charlestown's Patch reports that English plans to reopen his fire-damaged flagship over Labor Day weekend. According to a letter submitted to the city licensing board, English says that "I want to express that I am 100 percent committed to reopening the original Olives in its home in Charlestown, for which the community and I have a deep fondness." Apparently he's making progress on reconstruction, as another hearing to monitor the situation was canceled yesterday. [Patch]
