(May 10, 2013) Nancy Bolt was a general building contractor for 19 years, but the dream of opening her own eatery was “20 years in the making.”
Now was the right time for a career change, she said Monday while sitting inside her new business, The Greenhouse, located at 1503 Philadelphia Ave. in Ocean City.
“Everything has a time and a place,” Bolt said. “This location was the right fit.”
A unit in the shopping center between 15th and 16th streets became available and she took over the space on March 6. After some renovations, which included painting, new electric and plumbing, …
(May 3, 2013) A few months after retiring last May as CEO of VennGogh, LLC, a startup social media Web site focusing on nonprofit fundraising and crowd sourcing, at the age of 57, Warren Rosenfeld started to become a bit antsy.
When his wife, Dana, asked him if he were only to live another three months, what would he regret not doing? His response was “open a Jewish Deli.”

If you add a side of good, hot French Fries and maybe start the whole thing off with some Spicy Chicken Wings; well sir, you may just have the perfect American meal.

Bill and Mary Jaeger moved to the eastern shore from New York and realized rather quickly what we long time residents have always known; that a good bagel is as hard to find as a rainbow colored unicorn running around Assateague Island.

After all, a good breakfast…
