Binghamton restaurants ‘setting the table’ for phase three

first_imgBINGHAMTON (WBNG) — While the Southern Tier is still awaiting word on when restaurants and bars will be allowed to welcome customers inside as part of phase three, local eateries aren’t wasting any time getting ready. Sharak says with the state yet to release official guidance for restaurants, they aren’t exactly sure what they are preparing for. “50 percent is better than nothing and hopefully if the numbers get better or stay where they are then we’ll get back to normal,” Sharak says. “We want to clean everything up because the building has been closed for three months and get our food prep together for opening,” says co-owner Marie Sharak. At Sharkey’s, Marie Sharak says for now they are just excited to get back to business. At Sharkey’s while they too haven’t received official word, they are preparing for a fifty percent limit. “We have a lot of regulars and they’re like family so that’s what we’re looking forward to.” “We regularly get asked different questions from different businesses in different phases, they want to know what they can do, what they can’t do and we’re here to help,” he said. center_img Jason Garnar says he hopes the state could release that guidance as soon as tonight. For now Jordan Rindgen, owner of the Colonial on Court Street in Binghamton says he is playing the same waiting game. Binghamton mayor Rich David says much like the city was able to help restaurants expand outdoor seating by streamlining the permit process as part of phase two, he expects the city to act as an resource for local businesses during phase three. “It’s crazy but it is what it is there’s nothing we can do we just have to wait until we get the word and that’s it,” she says. Broome County Executive Jason Garnar says the county is on track to enter phase three this weekend, but he has yet to receive official word from the state. At Sharkey’s Bar and Grill on Glenwood Ave in Binghamton staff spent Monday getting the restaurant ready to open their doors once again. “I’m really not too concerned with what the regulations are going to be, because we’ll be able to adapt to them, we’re hoping that we’re not at 20 percent all summer but if it is we’ll have to adapt,” he says. last_img read more

Rooney sorry for ‘sloppy’ display

first_img As it turned out, a combination of City easing off and Rooney grabbing a late consolation meant the damage was not as extensive as had appeared likely. Still, for a team used to setting such high standards, Rooney knows the performance was not acceptable. “It is not good enough,” the 27-year-old told MUTV. “We know we have to improve and stop giving these sloppy goals away “It is not nice to lose to City. It was a bad result and we are all extremely disappointed.” Manager David Moyes excused Rooney from blame, claiming the England man did not deserve to be on the losing side. His goal – a fourth in three games – means he has now become the highest scorer in derby matches with 11. It is not an accolade he is taking much pleasure from. Wayne Rooney has admitted Manchester United’s performance in Sunday’s derby-day hammering by City was simply not good enough. Press Association “It is nice to score but it means nothing,” he said. “The most important thing today was the points and we have come away with none.” Given the tough baptism he has endured as United boss, it was perhaps no surprise Moyes should find himself paired together with Liverpool in the Capital One Cup as well. The Reds will be bolstered by the return of Luis Suarez, giving an additional twist to an already high-octane occasion. But Rooney recognises it provides the perfect opportunity for United to bounce back. “We have all grown up, whether it is Manchester, Liverpool or somewhere else having local derbies,” said Rooney. “It is not nice when you lose one. I have been there as a fan and now as a player. “Thankfully we have another massive game against Liverpool. “It is the ideal game for us. Any game against Liverpool, whether it is a friendly, Capital One Cup or Premier League, is massive. “We have to try and get the victory so we can put this defeat to the back of our minds.” United were beaten 4-1 by Manuel Pellegrini’s men, their worst away loss in the fixture since 2004. Out-manoeuvred in midfield, where £27.5million new-boy Marouane Fellaini was a particular disappointment, the Red Devils conceded three goals in a six-minute spell either side of half-time that left them staring down the barrel of total humiliation. last_img read more
