An old favorite years ago was the Blue Jay Resturant and lobster pond. As a child, it was amazing to see that tank of live lobsters waiting to become someone’s dinner! Of course now you can just head to Walmart to see the same thing. The Blue Jay was a favorite to the summer crowd of Manchaug Pond, feeding the many campers and seasonal residents.
But with the fire that hit the restaurant and apartment, today work has begun to clear the site and begin anew. It would be nice if the popular restaurant was indeed rebuilt.
