Olivia Hilton, Director of Strategic Initiatives for the Town of Strasburg & I strolled to Alforno's Italian Cuisine for a conversation with the new owner, Brandon. He told us how he came to be the owner of Alforno's and gave us a quick rundown of items on his menu. We talked about dough-making, marinara simmering, and the high priority he places on the customer experience. View his menu and/or order online at his website: and follow him on Facebook for specials.

For the second half of the conversation, Olivia & I strolled to our normal spot at Nancy's Coffee Bar so that she could give me details for several events coming up in the next few weeks.

She is currently accepting vendors/contestants for the Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup Festival that will happen on November 5, 2022. We also talked about the last three Front Porch Fridays - get the musical lineup here:
