    He looks older in the video than he seemed in real life in front of 770 this morning.

    The sign said they were opening tomorrow.

    The person who signed the letter said his secretary made a mistake. I'm not sure why it wasn't fixed yet, (or why he signed it without reading it.)

    I saw the letter on מוצ״ש. I asked one of my kids to go and snap a shot of it before it's replaced. My kids came back and said the place is open.

    When I went out for a walk with DW at around midnight, we passed by, letter was corrected (attached), and Rabbi Weinfeld was sitting inside talking to someone (presumably owner).

    Interesting. I wonder what it's all about. Next thing we know Calabria will have an OK.  ;D

    ETA: Maybe there was a disagreement where the owner wanted also all of his dairy products deemed Pareve, and the OK refused. Who knows. ;D ;D ;D

    1. They might try.
    2. Wouldn't reflect good on the OK if they did.
    3. I actually couldn't care less.
