A New Haunt Comes to South China Thursday; The Grain Room Lounge! [Video]

When Lisa Wardwell purchased the China Dine-ah from Norm Elvin earlier this year, she knew she was going to add a lounge.

Smiles, Laughs, Hugs and Tears Were All Part of Norm Elvin’s ‘Trivia Night’ Farewell at the China Dine-ah [Gallery]

My friend Norm Elvin barely choked back tears as he spoke to the large group that had gathered for trivia at the restaurant he started nearly seven years ago. That really hit me because, it seems like just a year or two ago, I was walking in to the Dine-ah for the first time.
