White River Junction residents who have been mourning Elixir Restaurant & Bar, the town’s martini, tapas and music joint, can hop off the mopey train. Next Friday, the hot spot reopens with a show by Sensible Soul Trio.

Vermont hospital food just got an infusion … of cash. On Monday, Rep. Peter Welch announced a $143,000 federal grant for Fletcher Allen Health Care’s Center for Nutrition and Healthy Food Systems.

The funds will help the hospital add more local food to its menu and foster relationships with farmers.

Welch made the announcement at the opening of FAHC’s new Harvest Café. The “green” eatery’s mission is to serve nutritious, local and organic food while reducing waste. What a concept: healing bodies and the Earth.
