Autumn in the North Cemetery.

Sixty miles west of Boston, Massachusetts there is the small New England town of Sturbridge. Located at the junction of I-90 (The Mass Pike), and I-84 it has become known as the "Crossroads of New England". The town was first settled over 300 years ago, and like other small New England towns it has grown just enough over the years to be in a difficult place today. How do we embrace the future without forgetting how we got to our present? How do we attract the right kind of growth, and maintain who we are? And, what about our culture out here in Central Massachusetts?

These pages will cause one to think about how to protect what we have, our future direction, and how to move on in the very best way.

Those thoughts, and other ramblings, will hopefully inspire more thought, conversation, action, and occasionally a smile...

Grand Opening For Playa Del Carmen March 12

The Chamber at the Crossroads of New England Announces

Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Playa Del Carmen

March 12, 2010

"A new tradition for family dining officially begins this week at the former location of Rom’s on Main Street in Sturbridge. All are invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the official grand opening of Playa Del Carmen, a Mexican family restaurant and cantina. Specializing in authentic Mexican cuisine, Carmen Del Playa will feature over 50 types of tequila and a live Mariachi band every Sunday night. Owners Carmen Scaffidi and her husband, Jorge Guzman, are dedicated to establishing a family restaurant that offers the freshest food, good prices and great service. Fresh guacamole prepared tableside, memorable margaritas, palm trees, and authentic Mexican furnishings are just a few of the touches that will make Playa Del Carmen a special place for the whole family to dine out.

“We had to wait so long to be open but the wait was worth it,” says Carmen referring to the months of work that went into renovating the 14,000 square foot building. There have already been a number of people who couldn’t wait for the official opening to experience Playa Del Carmen as evidenced by a parking lot full of cars seen there over the last several days. The restaurant held its soft opening on Thursday, March 4. “We would like to say ‘thank you’ to the community for their support.”

Experience a taste of Mexico and join us for a ribbon cutting ceremony as we celebrate Playa Del Carmen’s official Grand Opening on Friday, March 12 at 4:00pm. Following the ribbon cutting there will be a reception with complimentary appetizers and a cash bar available. Ribbon cutting ceremony is presented by
the Central Mass South Chamber of Commerce."
