McDonald's is Coming to WGV

Rumors have been swirling for months, "McDonald's is coming to World Golf Village."

Earlier in the week, the only proof we had of the rumored McDonald's was the above photograph of a construction area next to CVS at The Shoppes at Murabella.

After making a few calls, we have confirmation, a McDonald's is coming to Murabella. The New McDonald's will bring between 50 and 55 jobs to the area. The restaurant is slated to open October 27, 2011. Construction will be complete one week prior to opening. A grand opening celebration will occur several weeks after McDonald's opens.

We will update this story as we recieve more information.

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- An early morning fire destroyed part of a restaurant in historic St. Augustine.

It happened at the Florida Cracker Cafe at about 2 a.m. The St. Augustine Fire Department responded to the fire at 81 St. George Street after a city police officer noticed it during his morning patrol.

Most of the damage was contained to the dining room area.

St. Augustine Restaurant Offers Kid-Free Dining

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- There's a growing trend of businesses going "kids-free."  Cap's On the Water restaurant in St. Augustine allows children, but only in certain parts of the restaurant. 

"You want to have a nice bottle of wine and dinner. I think you should be able to do that without children crying and running in and out," Cap's owner Vivian de Raad said.

Three years ago, Cap's on the Water became a pioneer in what is becoming a popular national trend.  "We're restaurateurs, we're not babysitters," said owner Bernard de Raad."

Kids are allowed and welcome in the restaurant, just not in the dining room.  "Sixteen would be the cut off for me," said de Raad.
