The owner of the building that houses the former Boston’s Bistro & Pub said today he is in negotiations with a group of people interested in opening a new restaurant in the space.

“Nothing is finalized yet, but we’re getting close,” said Warren Sublette of suburban Cincinnati, who since 2007 has owned the property in the 7500 block of North Main Street (Ohio 48) in Harrison Twp. that housed Boston’s Bistro.

Sublette — who owned and operated a winery in Cincinnati in the late 1970s — is in the process of obtaining the Boston’s Bistro liquor license from David Boston, both men confirmed this morning.

Boston’s Bistro & Pub shut its doors July 10, 2016 after 35 years in business — the first quarter-century in downtown Dayton. The pub lost its lease and was forced to move from East Second and Jefferson streets in downtown Dayton to the Harrison Twp. location in 2005. Boston’s father had operated a Hungarian restaurant in the Harrison Twp. space in the 1950s and ’60s.

At the time of the bistro’s closure last summer, David Boston said there was a “strong possibility” the pub would reopen in a new location. And Boston told this news outlet this morning that he has not ruled out partnering with others to return to the business.

“I’ve never stopped looking,” Boston said. “It’s a matter of the right group and the right situation. I still want to make a difference in the Dayton market.”

MOBILE, Alabama – Twice booted from his position as state supreme court chief justice and dogged by allegations he pursued teenage girls when he was in his 30s, Roy Moore will find out Tuesday if the people of Alabama are willing to look past the scandals and send him to Washington as their next senator.

As Alabama’s special election neared the finish line on Monday, Moore, with the help of former aide to President Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, renewed his call for voters to help him “clean the swamp.” 

Moore’s opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, on Monday campaigned with NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley. Barkley told supporters that Alabama has, “got to stop looking like idiots to the nation.” 

The race, a special election being held to fill the Senate term of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has garnered national attention as allegations of sexual misconduct by Moore surfaced. 

Eight women have come forward to say Moore acted inappropriately toward them when they were in their teens and he in his 30s. He has denied the allegations.

Before his run for the Senate seat, Moore gained national attention when he was twice removed from his position as Alabama’s chief justice for violating judicial orders. 

If Jones wins Tuesday, he will be the first Democrat to do so in 20 years when the state’s last Democratic Senator, Howell Heflin, retired.

DETAILED FORECAST

TODAY: There could be some issues for the morning drive today due to slick spots and strong winds, said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Kirstie Zontini. Temperatures are at or above 32 degrees with mist and drizzle across the area, but as temperatures drop, slick spots could develop. As of early morning, snow is set up off Lake Michigan in northern Indiana. That snow, along with colder air, will arrive later this morning. Winds are already begun gusting between 25-35 MPH, which could produce some issues for the morning drive. As wind flow becomes more favorable off Lake Michigan, some lake effect snow bands are expected to develop. 

A look at conditions along I️-75 in Butler Twp.Tuesday morning

Active snow will likely start later this morning. There’s a chance for snow squalls during the day, and they will gradually turn northeast as the winds shift late afternoon. One to two inches of snow is possible in the bands. Outside of bands, it will be cloudy with flurries, but less than half an inch is expected. 

Rapid drops in visibility and slick roads are the main concern if caught in one of these bands, called a snow squall. The bands will be thin with strong winds on the road. Temperatures will fall through the day and wind chills will drop to the single digits by about 4 p.m. Any snow ends into early evening. Tonight temperatures drop into the teens with wind chills in the low single digits.
