There’s a lot going on behind the scenes in Davidson’s business world, and we thought you’d like to know about it. The business news listed here have been gathered from various secret sources and unsubstantiated rumor mongers and should be considered with that in mind. So believe it…Or not!

Gather ‘round the telly on November 3 at 9 p.m. and tune to the Food Network. You’ll be rewarded by the sight of Davidson “Icehouse” chef Jen Brule, who has been selected as a contestant on a Great Thanksgiving Cook-off. The celebrity chef for the show is Giada!

Spirited Cyclist is moving from Main Street to larger quarters in the Davidson Commons building as of November 1. The three window fronts left empty on Main when Spirited vacates may be resurrected eventually as a steak house.

Speaking of meat, the former Fuel Pizza restaurant on South Main is reopening soon in the same space as a beer and barbecue restaurant called “The Crazy Pig.” Also opening in South Main is “Guaranteed Rate Mortgage.”

The Brick House restaurant will become the ground floor feature of a three-story building behind the Davidson Clinic at the Circles 30 section of town. The building will also include offices on the second and third floor, and outdoor event space on the roof.

The Exxon station at Jetton and Griffith streets is being refurbished as a larger, updated Harris Teeter gas and convenience store.

“The Hop N Vine” bar has opened to serve beer and wine to patrons in the Linden building on Jetton Street. Nearly adjacent to the bar, the former “Monkees” store has been renamed as “MINE.” And, the Davidson Commons building has another new tenant, “Deka Lash,” which specializes in eyelash extensions.

That’s all we know for now. If you’ve got a tip to share, send it to [email protected].
