Pittsfield – Spice Restaurant, Bar and Lounge will be closed on Mondays beginning April 16 and return to its regular Monday schedule on May 28 (Memorial Day). The hiatus is the result of construction being performed on Burger, Spice's burger joint scheduled to open Memorial Day weekend, and Sugar, Spice's dessert bar slated to debut July 4th weekend. "We're doing major work that will require the shutdown of water, electrical and climate control systems throughout the building," said owner Joyce Bernstein. "That, in addition to the noise factor, would have made for a less-than-ideal customer experience. So we decided that shutting down on Mondays was the way to go." Bernstein added that this schedule will give the contractors an uninterrupted day to work and the cleaning crew plenty of time to clean up before Spice opens for lunch at 11:30 a.m. each Tuesday.

Pittsfield City Councilor Brings 16 Petitions to Meeting

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Newly elected Ward 7 Councilor Anthony Maffuccio started his term with a slate of 16 petitions ranging from simple municipal updates to new initiatives.
"They are just things that came up over the campaign trail," Maffuccio said before the City Council meeting Tuesday. "People talked to me about these things and while they are fresh in my head I'd like to put the ideas right out there." 
The majority of the petitions were kicked off to separate committees, subcommittees, or departments. Many that made the agenda were also routed to committees, subcommittees, or departments by Council President Peter Marchetti.
Maffuccio first asked the city assessor to provide a list of vacant lots and buildings and a date for public auction. This was directed to the Director of Finance Matthew Kerwood who said this list already exists and will be made available to councilors who not yet have it.
