The 14 Square Shopping Plaza added another shop as the highly awaited Clean Eatz Café, a dine-in cafe featuring burgers, wraps, flatbreads, and build-your-own bowls, opened Thursday, Jan. 19. 

Along with offering fresh food in-house, the national chain has meal plans. Similar to the popular subscription plans, it offers prepared frozen meals that can be eaten any time at home. Patrons can also grab quick-serve meals, drinks, and snacks. They also cater. 

The company says their meals are 600 calories or less, and their portion-control plans boast a balance of fats, carbs, and protein. Social media posts showcase their cauliflower crust pizzas that offer substantially lower calories. 

Clean Eatz, 4916 Illinois Road, is near Kirana and Penn Station East Coast Subs behind Target.

Downtown Huntington pub returns

In historic downtown Huntington, Silver Moon Pub is back in business. Actually, it’s the third incarnation of the establishment that’s had the names Silver Moon Café, Silver Moon Saloon, and The Rusty Dog Irish Pub with roots to the 1880s.

The pub, located in the Victorian-era Milligan Building at 32 N. Jefferson St., is part of a district listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The building also houses an art gallery and upscale apartments. 

A grant from the Office of Community and Rural Affairs helped fund renovations.

Cooking lessons offered at Salomon Farm

Their upcoming winter cooking workshops include baked goods, artisan pizza, Cajun and Polish meals, soups, and sushi. 

Anyone age 10 and older can participate in the $40 classes. Children younger than 10 can participate in classes geared just for them other times during the year.

Prohibitive Valentine favorite

The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum in Auburn will host a Bootlegger’s Ball on Feb. 15. Just a day after Valentine’s Day, it’s designed to make a splash as a Valentine’s event for your sweetie. 

It’s a throwback to the Prohibition era, but there are very few restrictions on dancing, cocktails, dining, and checking out the classic cars built in Auburn in the 1930s. Dressing in historically accurate clothing adds to the experience. 

It gets started at 6 p.m. and runs to 10 p.m.  Tickets are $35 per person and $65 for couples. The Eckhart Public Library is partnering on the 21-and-over event. For more information, call (260) 925-1444 or (260) 925-2414.

Jack’s Donuts opening spot on North Anthony

The popular Jack’s Donuts is moving closer to adding its second location in Fort Wayne, joining the 6731 W. Jefferson Blvd. store that opened as the pandemic hit in March 2020.  

Almost three years later, they’ll open their second spot on the north side in the former Subway near Dollar General on North Anthony Boulevard, just across the street from Concordia Lutheran High School. 

Dine at Savor restaurants to win gift cards

You still have plenty of time to enjoy Savor Fort Wayne, which continues through Jan. 29 at about 80 restaurants. You can find a complete list at SavorFortWayne.org.

GK teases downtown opening

We’re sure you’ve notice the “Coming Soon” announcement on the windows outside at the downtown GK Café & Provisions at 202 W. Berry St. 

Things seem to be getting close to opening since the bakery has begun ramping up announcements on social media, showing Grace Yencer painting a mural inside and Old 5 and Dime Sign Company adding signage to the windows.

A post said they are “putting final touches” on the site, with more news to come.
