Back in February I posted about some For Sale signs on the Empress Inn on Clark Avenue. Then a month ago I mentioned how some new signs went up. I never did see a Sold sign, so I don’t know if there are new owners or not. Regardless, the hotel is now called Empress Inn & Suites, and has an Indian restaurant called Delhi Darbar.
Sometime last year the Happy Wanderer on Stanley Avenue (across from the new Hilton expansion) closed it doors and was taken over by the bank. A company/team was then put together to try and bring this place back to life with interior upgrades, in the hopes of rejuvenating this establishment. Unfortunately the bank canceled the project and recently put the building up for sale.
