A look at two new Framingham restaurants: Monday handbook

WORCESTER, MA – Welcome to the January 24 edition of The Monday Manual, where we highlight important events coming up during the week (plus one local fact) in seven Patch communities between Framingham and Worcester.

This week we start in Worcester, which was a filming location (along with Framingham, Boston and Weymouth) for the Netflix hit ‘Don’t Look Up’. The best view in town comes early in the film when Dr. Teddy Oglethorpe (played by Rob Morgan) emerges from an office building on Mercantile Street.


1) Worcestershire

This is the last week for Worcester city workers to receive a booster shot. The city manager has set a February 1 deadline for all eligible city employees to receive a booster dose, or alternatively get tested for the coronavirus each week.

2) Wayland

Wayland has a new chief administrator. Louise Miller’s last day of work was Friday, and beginning Monday, acting city administrator Stephen Crane will take over until the city finds a permanent replacement for Miller. She is now Framingham’s new chief financial officer.

3) Malborough

The first real city council meeting of 2022 will take place on Monday evening. It’s a packed agenda with everyone from the reappointment of the police chief to the new name of a city cannabis dispensary under discussion.

4) Milford

A new gas station may soon open on East Main Street. A Taunton developer will go before the Select Board on Monday to seek a Chapter 148 license, which allows businesses to store flammable materials (like petrol). The proposal was already submitted to the Zoning Board of Appeals in August.

5) Natick

Natick is making a decision about a big play-off. The Charles River Dam Advisory Committee is meeting Tuesday night to discuss the future of recreation around the historic (but decrepit) South Natick Dam.
