Ras Doobie fan?

The Sun Web gods tell me no one reads newspaper blogs on the weekend. So you guys have been wasting enough time at work. But for those four loyal readers who have stuck with me this Saturday, I have a bit of news ...

Ras Doobie, the popular Jamaican restaurant, has closed and is becoming Penn Street Catering as of May 10, at least according to the guy who answered the phone when I called. (He said he was doing the renovating.)

Thanks to Marty Katz, the Baltimore editor of Zagat, for the heads up.

Oh, my. I had finally convinced my husband to try this restaurant. Now, it is gone. Just my luck. I guess that people like me illustrate why they closed. Anyway, thanks for the heads up. And, I do look at your blog every day. I really enjoy it.

I am so upset about be honest...Ras Doobie is now only doing catering...the restaurant has closed which is such a shame. They had the best food all around. There old phone number is still atleast you can order catering from them.
