Stashs celebrates 44 years
Stashs celebrates its 44th anniversary Tuesday at 4 p.m. The celebration ironically includes a ribbon cutting for Stashs owner Bobby Dubin's newest venture -- 2nd Street Enoteca, a BYOB Italian restaurant opening for dinner in the same storefront.
"We think it's wonderful to see how an established restaurant continues to evolve and grow," Highland Park Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Ginny Glasner said, "Whether it's to meet changing times, changing tastes and maybe the changing landscape of the community."
