California’s famous retro-themed fast food burger chain is opening a new location in Tempe. A spokesperson for In-N-Out Burger confirmed to The Arizona Republic on Thursday that the new store, located at 2405 W. Baseline Road, opens Dec. 4.

The new store will open on Friday at 10:30 a.m. and stay open until 1:30 a.m. serving Double-Doubles, Animal Fries and milkshakes.

Going forward, the new restaurant will open at 10:30 a.m. every day and will close at 1:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturdays. The restaurant will close at 1 a.m. Sunday-Thursday. 

The Baseline Road store joins another Tempe location, which can be found north of Tempe Town Lake along North Scottsdale Road. 

FOR SUBSCRIBERS: These 27 new restaurants, bars and coffee shops are now open

The Denver Post recently reported lines of people who waited 12 hours to snag a Double-Double at a new location in Aurora, Colorado. Although other locations of the fast food chain are already open in metro Phoenix, customers may want to be prepared to wait on Friday. The new restaurant will serve burgers and shakes at a drive thru and inside as dine-in seating is currently available at Arizona locations of the chain. 

The first location of In-N-Out Burger opened in 1948, according to its website. The first Arizona location opened in 2000 at Lake Havasu City. Arizona now has more than 30 locations of In-N-Out.

Across the country, there are now more than 300 locations of the burger chain.

The 18 most memorable U.S. Women’s Opens, ranked | Golf World

It is a landmark U.S. Women’s Open, No. 75, beginning next Thursday on the two courses at Champions Golf Club in Houston. And this year’s is certain to be among the most memorable Opens in the 75-year history of the premier championship in women’s golf, given its unique December date courtesy of a pandemic.

In celebrating the milestone, it felt right to reflect on the championship and spotlight the moments that have helped define the event through the years. There have been a variety of winners—from phenoms and Hall of Famers to dark horses and unknowns—winning in all sorts of ways. There have been tears of joy shed, and tears of heartbreak, too.

We recount it all in our countdown of the 18 most memorable U.S. Women’s Opens, a ranking that is likely to inspire some debate. Before we begin, however, here are a few interesting historical facts about the championship.

• It was not a USGA event initially. It was started by the Women’s Professional Golfers Association, which held it for three years. Then the LPGA was formed and it staged it the next four years. In 1953, the LPGA asked the USGA to take it over.

• The first Women’s Open in 1946 had a field of only 39. Entries have topped 1,000 every year since 2004.

• Mickey Wright and Betsy Rawls share the record for most U.S. Women’s Open victories, with four.

• Forty-five of the first 74 Women’s Opens were won by those in the World Golf Hall of Fame.

• Among those who never won the Women’s Open: Kathy Whitworth, Nancy Lopez, Lorena Ochoa and Beth Daniel.

18. Annika goes back-to-back (1996)

Annika Sorenstam had formally announced her arrival in women’s golf the year before at The Broadmoor, but began to forge her legacy as the dominant golfer of her generation by winning the Women’s Open for a second straight year. This one came at Southern Pines, a convincing six-stroke victory over Kris Tschetter after shooting a closing 66 to break the Women’s Open 72-hole scoring record with a eight-under 272 total. “It’s a wonderful feeling to win this championship,” Sorenstam said through tears. “Once was wonderful. To win it twice was more than wonderful.” In 2006, she would add a third Open victory to her distinguished record of 72 LPGA titles and 10 majors.

17. No Open for Nancy (1997)

She was 40 and at the end of her reign, with 48 LPGA victories but none of them the U.S. Women’s Open. Yet Nancy Lopez was tied for second after the second round at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club outside Portland, Ore., and solo second after the third, trailing by three. Lopez outplayed England’s Alison Nicholas in the final round (69 to 71), but ultimately came up one stroke short after two bogeys in her final four holes and missing a 15-foot birdie to force a playoff on the last. Finishing second for the fourth time in the national championship, Lopez knew she had

Covenant opens drive-thru coronavirus testing center near Fashion Square Mall in Saginaw

SAGINAW, MI – Covenant HealthCare announced on Tuesday, Dec. 1 that it recently opened up a new drive-thru center for COVID-19 testing to replace its Washington Avenue testing site for the winter season.

The drive-thru testing site is located at 4900 Fashion Square Mall in Saginaw Township at the former Sears Automotive building on the corner of Bay and Tittabawassee in the northwest corner of the mall parking lot.

Currently, samples taken at the drive-thru center are being sent to outside laboratories and results are expected within two to four days, according to Covenant. Testing demand may impact the turnaround time of results.

According to the Saginaw County Health Department, there have been 8,425 total positive cases of coronavirus in the county as of Tuesday, Dec. 1, with 239 total deaths.

The Saginaw County Health Department issued the following guidelines and steps for residents to take if they test positive for COVID-19:

• As soon as you or a loved one tests positive, start isolation immediately for at least 10 days.

3rd restaurant opens in Mount Pleasant center this year; Charleston clothing shop to open | Business

A Florida-based restaurant chain now offers two locations in the Charleston area and is the third new dining venue to set up shop in a Mount Pleasant shopping center this year. 

Maple Street Biscuit Co. opened Tuesday at 996 Queensborough Blvd. in the Publix-anchored Queensborough Shopping Center near U.S. Highway 17 and Anna Knapp Boulevard. It follows Paisano’s Pizza Grill, which opened earlier this year, and Groucho’s Deli, which opened in the fall.

Maple Street’s specialties include freshly made biscuits, never-frozen chicken and newly ground beans every day for fresh coffee. Full-plate offerings are on the menu as well.

Owned by Sandy Powers, it’s open 7 a.m.-2 p.m. each day. Richard Starling will oversee the new location.



Record holiday spending projected from more disposable income due to pandemic

Maple Street previously opened is at 1739 Maybank Highway in the Harris Teeter-anchored James Island Center.

Jacksonville-based Maple Street has 41 restaurants in seven Southern states, including two Upstate locations in Simpsonville and Greenville.

Vintage threads

A new vintage women’s apparel shop is opening in downtown Charleston.

Portal will offer pre-owned threads in a 1,023-square-foot shop at 189 St. Philip St. 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and noon-5 p.m. Sunday. It’s scheduled to open Dec. 10.

Tina Heath-Schuttenberg, co-owner of James Island restaurants Kwei Fei and Micho, said she has been walking past the site for the past five years and dreaming of opening her own clothing store.

“I come from a retail background with my history spent as a buyer and merchandiser for a quirky mix of high/low brands (such as) Buffalo Exchange, Zac Posen, The Plaza Hotel and Dean & Deluca,” she said.

During the past few years, she and her husband and business partner David Schuttenberg worked to create the two restaurants at Charleston Pour House on Maybank Highway, which she said kept her busy.

“The stars finally aligned, and I’m making the move back to my first love of retail,” Heath-Schuttenberg said.

Portal, she said, will be a buy-sell-trade-rental concept for vintage threads. She also plans to include contemporary brands. With an all-inclusive size range, she says clothing styles from edgy to demure will come in “an odd mix” that will be offered at an “affordable luxury price point.”

The shop also plans to offer curbside pick-up service and appointments for those who might need a safer shopping experience during the pandemic. All selling and trading will be done by appointment.

Enviro-Master of Detroit opens new disinfection drive-thru for vehicles

CLOSE

Almost like a scene from “Ghostbusters,” workers, clad with personal protective equipment and what looks like a proton pack, spray down the interior of cars and other vehicles at a drive-thru.

Instead of sucking up ghosts, they’re disinfecting and sanitizing cars to fight against 2020’s own problem: the coronavirus. 

Enviro-Master of Detroit, a commercial health and safety company, unveiled its new sanitizing service that’s aimed at delivery drivers, emergency service vehicles and ride-sharing cars. 

Joe Kulberg, Director of Operations at Enviro-Master Services, demonstrates their drive-thru sanitizing service on Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020, in Warren. The service utilizes an EPA approved disinfectant with their “Virus Vaporizer” tool to sanitize cars.

Guests can drive up to the Enviro-Master location in Warren, hop out and receive a touch-free disinfection service for their car’s interior. According to a news release, Enviro-Master uses a non-toxic, non-corrosive and food-safe germicide that’s dispensed from an electrostatic sprayer, basically the equivalent of a proton pack for germs. 

Enviro-Master of Detroit’s owner, Ketura Brandes, came up with the idea after the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services announced a three-week closure for indoor dining at restaurants. Brandes aimed this drive-thru service at food delivery drivers, who would see an increase in delivery orders as a result of the shutdown. 

Brandes then decided to expand the sanitization service to law enforcement, first responders, Uber and Lyft drivers. 

Despite the virus being fragile and not surviving easily outside of the human body, according to a report by the Associated Press, experts still recommend cleaning frequently touched areas.

Disinfecting highly touched surfaces can also kill other gastrointestinal bugs and pathogens that make people sick. 

Early studies found the virus lasting for days on surfaces. However, the studies used large viral loads and were not conducted in real-world settings, according to AP. Since the early days of the pandemic, it’s clear that person-to-person contact is the main way coronavirus is spread.

According to Enviro-Master’s website, the spraying service uses a disinfectant, registered with the Environmental Protection Agency, that kills pathogens such as COVID-19, norovirus, influenza, hepatitis and tuberculosis. 

For the month of December, Enviro-Master will be having a special that’ll make each cleaning session $5. Normally, the price is $10 per disinfecting session. However, for current military members,

Ralph’s Slices Opens In Farmingdale With Emphasis On ‘Home-Style’

FARMINGDALE, NY — There’s a new spot to grab a pizza in Farmingdale.

Ralph’s Slices, family-owned by the same proprietors as the neighboring Ralph’s Ices, opened at 850 S. Main St., Farmingdale, on Nov. 2, co-owner Gilda Bilardello said. The planning, permits and construction process took two years. However, the eatery is finally a reality.

The Calabrese family was inspired to open a home-style pizzeria that offers pizza along with a menu that tastes “just like Nonna used to make,” Bilardello told Patch. The menu includes many varities of pizza, homemade pasta, fresh salads, piping hot heroes and other entrees.

“Every dish we create honors our ‘moms’ in the best way we know how: cooking for you and your loved ones,” Bilardello said.

The opening of Ralph’s Slices and expansion of a family business comes in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

“While this is not an ideal time to open, we hope that we can bring some sort of comfort to our customers in a time where comfort, safety and kindness are most needed,” Bilardello said.

The business follows all Nassau County Board of Health protocols to keep its staff and customers safe at all times, according to Bilardello. As recommendations shift, so do the store’s own guidelines.

“We do all that we can to keep safety on the forefront while bringing our customers a little piece of our home into their homes,” Bilardello said.

Ralph’s Slices offers takeout and free delivery at a $10 minimum every day from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Due to COVID-19, the business has outdoor seating and a few bar stools a distance from each other inside. The store can be reached at 516-586-8395.

Chase Bank opens in Greenville; GSP travel update; Main Street news; online shopping tips | Greenville Business

The largest bank in America opened its first branch in Greenville last week.

Chase Bank is undergoing a five-year, local-market expansion that last year brought the banking behemoth to Clemson. After that first branch opened, Chase followed with a second branch this summer in Mount Pleasant.

The Greenville branch, at 652 Haywood Road, is the bank’s third location in South Carolina, and it has plans to open another four by year’s end, according to a company spokeswoman who contacted The Post and Courier last week.



Brushy Creek homes; Greenville Chamber accreditation; City View progress; Chipotle opens

Going into 2021, three of Chase’s seven South Carolina branches will be in Greenville. The other two branches will be at 1221 Woodruff Road, site of a former Applebee’s restaurant, and 2 State Park Road, site of a former Wendy’s restaurant in the Cherrydale shopping center.

The bank already has 600,000 customers in South Carolina through credit-card accounts, mortgages and other loans, investments and existing checking/savings accounts that newcomers to the state have carried in with them.

“What we found is we had so many people moving, it’s such a desirable place to live, we have Chase customers moving to Greenville every day from California, New York, Chicago and other places,” said Mark Lucas, the Carolinas market director for wealth management.

Lucas is based in Charlotte, N.C., and Alfonso Hernandez is moving here from New Jersey to be Chase’s South Carolina market director.

“I stumbled upon the waterfall in the center of town,” Hernandez said. “It’s a beautiful, beautiful city. And equally beautiful people.”

Chase already has a business banking branch in downtown Greenville, open since 2015, and previously made a $4.1 million New Market Tax Credit investment in the Highland Baking Co. project in Spartanburg.

Nationwide, Chase serves 61 million households.

“The theory here for us is when we open these locations, with that comes a litany of resources for clients and employees,” Hernandez said.

The Columbus, Ohio-based Chase had consolidated assets of $2.9 billion as of Sept. 30, according to the Federal Reserve. Bank of America has $2 billion, and Wells Fargo has $1.7 billion. Chase also has the largest number of domestic branches, at nearly 5,000.

The bank is hiring, Hernandez said. Entry-level jobs will pay $15 an hour plus benefits.

Passenger air travel seems to have reached a plateau the past few months as erstwhile travelers wait for widespread vaccines and reduced restrictions. Even during a pandemic, though, the holiday season gets people moving.

“The week looks good when you compare it to last week,” said Greenville-Spartanburg International President and CEO Dave Edwards on Monday. “It’s all relative. We’re still probably running about 50 percent of normal traffic when we look at the loads that are projected for this Thanksgiving week.”

Queens Bred, Fashion Designer LaQuan Smith Opens Up About His Journey And 2020

He’s a New Yorker, he’s from Queens, and he’s American fashion designer LaQuan Smith. His creations are specific for a certain type of woman. Women from Jennifer Lopez, to Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Rihanna are known to drink from his aesthetic design fountain. Smith gives inauguration credit into fashion to his grandmother, who taught him the intricacies of sewing and pattern making. And today, his design style as unapologetic, glamorous, sexy, classy and luxurious.

In a chat with Smith, he opens up about design school, his ah-ha moment when he knew he wanted to be a designer, what his process is like in creating new collections, and what the world can expect to see from him in 2021. Photographed by New York City fashion and beauty photographer Andrew Day, who has worked with some of the industry’s most leading fashion talent.

It was the women in his family that propelled the thirty-two-year-old to become a designer. “After seeing the beautiful women in my family dress up for occasions, it lit the spark in me to want to create beautiful clothes,” he notes. Smith is not fashion school educated but rather self-taught, filled with passion for his craft, and has a ruthless eye for what his clientele wants to wear. “I used to think that going to design school would have elevated my craft, but now I don’t think it’s necessary for me to go to fashion design school. Learning on my own and carving my own path forced me to execute on my own and figure it out myself,” says Smith.

What’s unique about Smith’s journey is that by the age of twenty-one, he premiered at New York Fashion Week when most design students of his same ilk and age are still in school. “I was so fortunate to have my first debut fashion show during NYFW in 2010, with the help of my mentor at the time Andre Leon Talley. I actually held my runway show at the Peninsula and Serena Williams closed the show in 2012. With help from my network I was able to showcase strong for my first outings.”

His creative process timeline is average for most design houses. “It takes me a full 6 months to create a collection- starts with my inspiration process, goes to my draping, prototyping and sample making, down to fitting and casting, and finally our runway shows or a lookbook.” And, Smith chooses to have his offices in Queens as opposed to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. “Long Island City, Queens is important for me to be in as its close to my birth spot in Queens but it’s a haven opposed to the bustling nature of Manhattan. During fashion week I’m able to walk out the office in complete isolation sometimes.”

What makes Smith’s style specific is

She built her earring collection and gave away pairs to friends, but she didn’t realize she had a viable product until her husband spoke up. “I don’t know how I would have done this without Brandon’s support. He encouraged me from day one.”

She reached out to the Women’s Creative, applied for spots at its pop-up markets, and began selling.

The rose that grew • Although Mains fully expresses her fashion sense today, she had fewer choices in childhood. “I was in the foster care system. I remember drawing outfits I wish I could wear. I watched pop music videos, and I always loved the fashions,” she says, “but my clothes were mostly given to me.”

When she reunited with her biological older sister, she discovered she had a fashion past. “She said I always wore sundresses — I loved sundresses — and I was always barefoot. She called me ‘Country’ when I was little,” Mains says.

Dance to the music • “When I was 12, I was adopted and raised in a family of 10 children; six girls and four boys. I’m right in the middle,” she says. “My sister was taking dance lessons at a studio, so my parents sent me, too. I studied dance until I was 18. I went off to college but the dance environment there wasn’t what I thought it would be and I left. When I came home I taught, took classes from all kinds of teachers, learned from YouTube and took online training to keep sharp.”

Ever taste Rocky Mountain-style BBQ? Meridian restaurant opens today. Boise is next.

In the mood for smoked brisket tacos? Mini barbecue pork sliders?

Or craving a multi-meat-piled Caveman burger that redefines the word “whopper”?

Utah-based R&R Barbeque has arrived to feed those carnivorous urges. The new Meridian restaurant opens at 11 a.m. Monday at 3680 E. Fairview Ave. It’s in the former Corner Bakery Cafe spot at The Village at Meridian.

R&R BBQ combines fast-casual convenience with a slow-smoked menu. And the chain is aiming to do more than just integrate itself into the local restaurant community, marketing manager Nadine De La Fuente says.

“We’re trying to make a splash. We’re excited,” De La Fuente explains in a phone interview. “We’ve been in the business for a while, and we’ve spent a lot of time perfecting our recipes and our food. We’ve kind of coined the term ‘Rocky Mountain barbecue,’ and that’s what we’re trying to bring to Idaho.”

The first R&R restaurant opened in 2011, debuting in downtown Salt Lake City before growing into eight Utah locations. The Idaho store is R&R’s first out-of-state expansion, but it won’t be the last. R&R also plans to open at 150 N. 8th St. in downtown Boise on the second floor of the Main + Marketplace building That’s coming in the second quarter of 2021.

So what exactly is “Rocky Mountain ’cue”? (No, it’s not meat marinated in Coors Light … .)

“Our style is unique to us,” De La Fuente says. “We’ve kind of taken a little bit of everything that we like from other barbecue styles and made it into our own.”

It can be certified Angus beef brisket or smoked chicken (try the boneless thigh). Or “Friggen’ Hot” wings and smoked bacon-wrapped meatloaf. It can be sides ranging from large onion rings breaded in-house to fried okra and hush puppies made from scratch.

And, of course, there’s that hedonistic Caveman burger ($12.99): 1/3 pound of smoked beef with smoked sausage, smoked pulled pork, fried jalapenos and melted Jack cheese, slathered in sweet barbecue sauce.

R&R BBQ was founded by California-raised twins who racked up awards on the barbecue circuit going brick-and-mortar. They announced their retirement this year, but growth plans for R&R already were cooking. The fast-casual brand has the financial backing of Savory Fund, a newly created, $90 million investment force. Savory also powers Utah-based Mo’ Bettahs Hawaiian Style Food, which opened in Meridian last year.

R&R BBQ in Meridian is about 4,000 square feet and offers seated dining. Online ordering and takeout also are available. Delivery won’t be available immediately, but it’s planned soon through third-party services such as DoorDash.

And if you’re normally not a fan of traditional slab-of-meat barbecue? You still might want to strap on a bib and give R&R a go. The restaurant’s brisket is “incredible,” Fuentes says — even if it’s not her go-to menu item.

“This is really surprising,” she says, “but the pulled pork tacos are my favorite. I’ve never thought to get tacos at a barbecue spot, but the first time
