I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patronage through out the years and I enjoyed seeing you. As you know this has been a very difficult time for me and many others on Main Street. I have had long deliberations on what to do moving forward and due to financial hardship and health issues, I have decided not to reopen Johnnys Bistro which I have and will miss seeing great people enjoying themselves. This is one part of my life which I will never forget, watching families come in and seeing kids growing up and enjoying great food. We have been on Main st for over 10 years building a loyal base of great people and relationships which I sorely will miss.

Merry Christmas, I will miss you all

No Parking On Main Street To Be Enforced

The Howard County Police Department has asked the ECP to remind property owners, business owners and residents that only contractor's vehicles may park on Main St.  No personal vehicles are allowed to park, even if they are a contractor.  They must move their vehicles once they have finished load/unloading.  The HCPD will be writing parking warning as of now but will in the near future begin writing citations.

Judge's Bench Pub Open Mic Night
First Tuesday of Every Month

“Mary Poppins”

Howard County Summer Theatre is pleased to announce auditions for its 2017 production of Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s MARY POPPINS! Auditions re-scheduled for Saturday, January 14, 2017 are postponed due to weather and Howard County schools being closed. So this audition has again been rescheduled, this time for Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 9:30 at Mt. Hebron High School. Auditions are open to high school students and adults. All roles are open. Please bring 16-32 bars of a song that showcases your vocal skills. An accompanist and a CD player will be provided. Performance dates are June 29-30 and July 1, 5-8 @ 7:00 and July 2nd at 2:00. Rehearsals will begin in late April. For more information about HCST please visit our webpage at 

The Banks family has been searching for years for a suitable nanny for their two unruly children, Jane and Michael. When Mary Poppins arrives to answer an ad for a nanny that the children wrote but never sent, it becomes clear that the Banks home will never be the same. Through a series of adventures, Mary, her friend Bert, and a host of eccentric characters help the Banks family realize how much they love and need each other.  Classic songs such as Chim Chim Cher-ee, Step in Time, and A Spoonful of Sugar are joined by some newer tunes such as Practically Perfect and A Man Has Dreams to tell a Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious story. We hope you can be part of the journey!

As part of HCST’s “Summer of Disney” our Junior Show this year is Disney’s THE LION KING! Show dates will be June 15 and 16, 2017 at Long Reach High School. Auditions are scheduled for Sunday, March 19, 2017 at Long Reach High School.
