Fort Collins restaurants to open new ones as part of new development plan

NEW ORLEANS — Fort Collins restaurateurs are about to begin a major push to reopen some of the more than 400 restaurants that were closed in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, bringing the total number of locations back to nearly 600.

The restaurants, which are expected to open in coming weeks, include two locations in Fort Collins that are scheduled to open later this year.

The new Fort Collins locations will include two restaurants that have been closed in recent months, the first one being the newly opened Fort Collins restaurant Dixie Diner.

The second restaurant, The Bar, has been a longtime Fort Collins staple.

The restaurant opened in 2014 and is currently a fixture in the city, serving up hearty burgers and a wide variety of appetizers.

Pittsburgh restaurants close by as protests flare in US

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (AP) A crowd of about 30 people gathered Sunday outside a popular Greek restaurant in the small Pittsburgh suburb of West Chester, chanting and banging pots and pans and banging on a police car, local media reported.

Police responded and used pepper spray to disperse the crowd.

The incident occurred less than a week after a small crowd in the area of the restaurant was met with pepper spray by officers who were trying to disperse a small group of demonstrators who had blocked traffic, local reports said.

Several police officers were hurt during the clashes, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

The protesters had been blocking traffic on I-75, an expressway through Pittsburgh’s downtown, local news outlets said.

The protests come after protests over the weekend in cities across the country and in Washington, D.C.

Protesters also staged a rally in Washington this week, and hundreds more in New York and Philadelphia have taken to the streets in the past two days.

The unrest began with the death of a 32-year-old black man in North Charleston, South Carolina, on Saturday, and spread to other parts of the country on Sunday, when police fired pepper spray and tear gas at crowds.
