Epping is really changing with more businesses and restaurants coming to town all the time. The latest restaurant and pub in town--The Holy Grail--is already bustling with thirsty patrons. I ran into a friend that is waitressing at this place the other day and she says they are slammed with customers already. I took a spin through their parking lot this morning while on a trip to Lowe's in Epping and the outside still looks very much like a quiet little church. I hear the inside is really nice with a gigantic bar. I plan to make a trip soon. Check them out at http://www.theholygrailpub.com/
So I was planning to head over there tonight (Saturday) for an official first look. And then, I was out and about this afternoon. I made a stop at a local establishment where I heard from an employee who went to Epping last night. Apparently this place was so busy that they ran out of food at 7 p.m. and had a line out the door. Wozers. I called my friend Jason, aka Mr. New Hampshire, for a report. Turns out he and his family went there last night at 4:30 for an early dinner. It was packed. They didn't get their food forever. Then half of it came. It was a mad house. I'd say this place didn't anticipate the interest or crowds. Epping's like a destination now since the LaBarre trial started. People are all going to be stopping to see the place where it all began...the EppiCenter. Oh wait, there really is a plaza called that now..
And so I ventured somewhere else tonight, deciding to let them get settled first. Stay tuned for a review of the other place..
