OC Restaurant Files For Reorganization

A long-time restaurant has filed for Chapter 11 reorganization this week after a tumultuous start to the year.

Satellite Restaurants Inc. owns and operates the 120th Street Crabcake Factory USA, which turns 25 years old next year.

“Crabcake Factory is an Ocean City icon and we don’t plan on changing a thing in regards to ability to deliver the delicious food and drinks that Ocean City knows and loves. This is a COVID and business issue that requires a reorganization solution. Our quality and service will not be compromised. We are not going anywhere,” said Johnny Brooks, owner and CEO of Crabcake Factory USA since 1996. “Unfortunately recent events relating to COVID-19 and the restrictions placed on restaurants coupled with some long standing wage and tax liabilities have tied our hands going into an uncertain offseason. We want to be proactive protecting the legacy of Crabcake Factory for another 25 years in Ocean City.”

Phil Collins sues ex-wife Orianne after she allegedly refused to move out

Talk about “separate lives.”

Phil Collins has filed a lawsuit against his ex-wife, Orianne Cevey, after she allegedly refused to leave his Miami Beach, Florida, home after marrying another man in Las Vegas in August.

In the documents, Collins claims Orianne and her new husband, Thomas Bates, have “taken possession of the property by a show of force” and allegedly have hired “armed guards to patrol the Property with openly displayed firearms.”

Five hurt after store explosion near Virginia’s James Madison University

Five people were hurt after a likely gas explosion at a strip mall in Harrisonburg, Va., just blocks from the campus of James Madison University, according to reports.

The early Saturday blast could be felt for miles around and sparked a fire that eventually caused so much damage, several shops were razed.

Among the victims were three James Madison University students who suffered minor injuries.

The trio had been standing outside the store when the explosion occurred, part of an Army ROTC running group which had been involved in a 10-mile race, the finish line of which was just yards from the explosion site.

While Gov. Ralph Northam identified the source of the incident as a gas explosion, local officials could not confirm the cause, saying more investigation was needed.
