March is a month for rodeos

VALDOSTA — The weekend of March 21, Berrien County once again hosts the Cotton Blossom Roundup rodeo and the following weekend, March 28, the inaugural Rodeo Lake Park will be held at Raisin’ Cane.

The popularity of the rodeos and the number of local riders are impressive. When you pick up your copy of the March edition of the Valdosta Scene magazine, you’ll enjoy  reading about the local horse scene and riders, along with a lot of other great stories.

The new Cactus Flower Café owners have an interesting story to tell, and the food looks amazing.

And who can forget that this month is St. Patrick’s Day, so in honor of the Irish holiday, we went to local pub Lucky’s in Remerton where they were only too happy to showcase some of their Irish whiskeys and Irish specialty drinks. Great photos and recipes, so don’t miss it.

Tips for spring daytrips, great advice from our columnists and photos from recent events are all inside the pages of the Scene, so pick up your copy today at Books-a-Million or The Times office.

Business Roundup

The demolition has started on the former bank building on Inner Perimeter across from Chick-fil-A where the new Starbucks is supposed to be going.

There’s a hotel on North Ashley Street that is also undergoing demolition but not sure what all is going there.

Baytree Pizza is moving from its current location on Baytree to the recently vacated location of Ruby Tuesday’s at the Valdosta Mall. The move should take place in the next few weeks.

The renovations on the new location for Daylight Donuts are continuing. Their third location will be in Remerton in front of Lucky’s on Baytree.

The new Mill Pizza Buffet near there in Remerton Square continues to do well, and hopefully the game area will be open soon.

The developers of Nelson Hill on Val Del are renaming the subdivision, expanding it tremendously, and getting ready to do more. The Flemacley group just bought another foreclosed development, this time in Lake Park, and will hopefully turn it around, too.

Still watching progress on the various businesses being constructed around town, so more updates on those next week, hopefully with some opening dates.

That’s it for this week, but if there’s something I missed, please let me know!
