The Winchester Applebee's, owned and operated by Thomas & King, is serving up a new look and feel. On the menu: a remodeled interior and exterior with warmer color tones, a more contemporary design, updated restrooms and murals depicting the neighborhood the restaurant serves. The Applebee's on West Lexington Avenue unveiled the new look when renovations wrapped up recently. “We didn't change what people know and love about Applebee's; we simply enhanced those elements to give our Winchester restaurant more of a local connection,” said Christy Metcalfe, senior vice president of marketing for Thomas & King.

For the third year in a row, my retired Navy fiancé and I (an Army veteran) enjoyed the wonderful Veteran's Day free meal that Applebee's so graciously offers all Armed Forces vets and active duty personnel. The meal was delicious, the atmosphere was crowded with old and young military people - some in their uniforms, dressed from camouflage fatigues to full dress mess uniforms complete with bow tie. It was great to hear all the military people reminiscing about their military service, about friends sadly lost, about friends gratefully reunited.

Hunter, 27, were arrested near the restaurant for allegedly trafficking crack cocaine, Winchester Police Chief William Jackson said. Jackson did not know how much the men allegedly had, but was notified of the arrests. Neither the police report nor the citations had been filed at press time. Eyewitnesses complained about the arrest going down at the crowded restaurant lot. An eyewitness to the incident, who did not want to give his name, said he saw the driver flee before the car was "cut off" by police cars "at the top of the hill" near the traffic light on Lexington Avenue.

Dear Editor: During my usual and customary hour and a half wait to be seated at Applebee's on Friday, I couldn't help but wonder: Where are the restaurants? Where's the Red Lobster and O'Charley's we were promised when we voted for liquor-by-the-drink? Where's the Ruby Tuesday's, Rafferty's, or Tony Roma's that were waiting in the wings once Danville went moist? Since that vote, Danville has a remodeled Long John Silvers and Arby's, has a future Captain D's and now a Huddle House, none of which serve alcohol.
