|The former Yorkshire Farms restaurant|
|Bakunas and Lavin|
After extensive renovations, they will reopen it as -- no, not Alice's -- Joe's Roadhouse Lounge. They had given some thought to using "Alice" in the name, but switched directions when it was thought that might have some legal complications.
The building currently is home to an antique shop and has not operated as a restaurant for several years after a 30-year run.
Lavin and Bakunas also own a home in Chatham, about 15 miles north of Claverack. The Hudson Register-Star has a good interview with them about their project, available online.
