Sycamore BYOB in Lansdowne

A new restaurant is coming to Lansdowne. Per the website, the restaurant will be called Sycamore and appears to be a perfect addition to the Lansdowne main street at 14 S. Lansdowne Avenue.

Sycamore will offer artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, soups, salads, and creative appetizers and main dishes with a local, seasonal emphasis.

We’re a BYO, but that won’t stop us from creating some of the best and freshest mixers around. We encourage you to walk in with any kind of liquor (Whiskey, Gin, Tequila, Vodka, Bourbon, etc) and find innovative and classic cocktail mixers featuring fresh squeezed fruit juices, and lovely accoutrement.

Speaking of Lansdowne, have you tried out Cinema 16:9 yet?

Federal Tax Credits for Energy Efficiency

On October 3, 2008, the “Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008” was signed into law. This bill extended tax credits for energy efficient home improvements (windows, doors, roofs, insulation, HVAC, and non-solar water heaters). Tax credits for these residential products will now be available for improvements made during 2009. More information is available at Federal Tax Credits for Energy Efficiency, but if you happen to know a good contractor who can help with insulating an attic based on the federal guidelines required to qualify for the credit, please let me know.
