You guys are funny...fighting about who makes the best processed pasta into a meal. I have to agree that I also never liked La Cucina I think it is over priced, over rated and just not very good. I believe the Olive garden is only slightly better. If the Olive Garden has a liquor license then maybe they obtained Damon's when they closed down. Only a certain amount of liquor licenses are allowed in an area!

Are you kidding? If La Cucina has been a locally owned business that has been active in the community, then why in the heck would General Mills who is just another new massive corporation in town, get the license over a long term supporter of Hanover community like La Cucina? Because we should always roll out the red carpet for the company with the most money and the most jobs shipped out of our country? I'm always amazed at how much people love licking the filthy boots of super sized corporations that run our government, make us sick and steal your paychecks to stuff their larders.

Very simple answer as to why Olive Garden could possibly get that liquor license. MONEY! The license that was held by Damon's is sold just like any other commodity to the highest bidder with the approval of the PLCB.
I believe that General Mills most likely could out bid La Cucina/Jerry & Sals(same family). I'm not saying I agree with that outcome, just that it is the reality of the way things happen.

I'll be fascinated to see if Olive Garden shows up with a license to serve wine (nobody pushes crappy wine harder than OG), that would take one serious corrupt back room deal after so many local restaurants have been denied.
I'm looking at the Olive Garden menu online right now, I see lots of $10.50-$16.00 simple pasta dishes, how is that cheaper than La Cucina??$6.35 for pre-packaged Bruschetta at OG?$6.50 for bread at OG and La Cucina gives bread assortments away free! Some of the OG appetizers are $10.25!! Sorry man, I know some people say they are voicing an "opinion", but prices are objective, and Olive Garden is super expensive for pre-packaged food, and service? I don't consider waiting hours to get a seat "great service". OG can go suck it!
If Olive Garden is handed an easy wine license, then the people who own La Cucina should hire a lawyer and ruin some crooked politician's day.
Small American businesses with American workers need to be protected like giant tax sucking corporations such as Olive Garden/General Mills. Really, how much money do you all want to funnel into General Mills? It's the same ol' pre packaged re-heated processed food that General Mills is famous for selling in Wal Mart.
List of GM pre-packaged foods: Betty Crocker, Yoplait, Colombo, Totinos, Jeno's, Pillsbury, Green Giant, Old El Paso, Häagen-Dazs, Cheerios, Lucky Charms.
12 of General Mills's food manufacturing facilities are in in the Asia/Pacific region, 5 in Canada (2 of which are leased), 7 in Europe (3 of which are leased) and 5 in Latin America and Mexico, and 1 in South Africa...how freakin American...I'll support American jobs so I have the right to complain about US unemployment, while others here may still choose to support sending American jobs out of the country by giving $$ to Olive Garden/General Mills...COMMIES!!!! LOL!
I have trouble spending $25 per person for this GM tripe, but there is a sucker born every minute IN MY OPINION. Enjoy the wait, I'll be up the street eating a freshly cooked meal while YOU stand outside in the cold and your kids breath cigarette smoke from other people waiting outside! LOL!
Hate to rain on your parade...but live Garden will have a liquor license and I don't know where you are getting your prices from, but I can take my family of 4 to Olive Garden and pay only $7.00-$10.00 each an average. When they have their endless pasta bowl I can go there and ea all I want for around $12.00 including salads. You might want to refigure again. And as far as LaCucina hiring a lawyer to fight OG....I don't see it happening. How can a small town family...i.e. The Malvone Family ever compete against a national chain? Not going to happen. By the way...I don't wait outside. They have call ahead seating. Ever try it? Get with the times man!

Freedom Rider, you keep bashing on Hobby Lobby and don't even know what it is. It's a HUGE store filled with furniture, and all kinds of craft stuff, including fabrics, and lots of cool stuff. Don't knock it til you tried it. I for one am ecstatic about finally having a decent craft place to get stuff for my business! I'm so happy I won't have to go to Chambersburg anymore.

Still sounds gay. We need a Best Buy. Don't you already have A C Moore to do your crafts?

Crafts, sewing, do I need to continue. We need some real stores in Hanover is basicly what I am saying.

Crafts and sewing are not "gay". I'm not sure its appropriate to use the term in that way either. It's a real store and a quality one. I'm not sure why you're fighting for a Best Buy when they're more expensive than Walmart or any other stores we have in town. Seems like a waste to me.

Well Best Buy has a way larger selection than Wal-Mart for one. Plus you can buy any electronic or movie or music you want. That would bring many more shoppers to the area. Who even has heard of a Hobby Lobby? No one I know. Another shopping center that will go empty in Hanover.

For those asking about a Best Buy or Circuit City, we will be getting an Ultimate Electronics (they are a competitor to BB, CC, and hhgregg). You can check them out at:

They have already signed on to go into the first phase of Gateway Hanover.

As for the Hobby Lobby, I have been in numerous ones and I don't see what they have over AC Moore, but I guess competition is good. I would rather have seen a true "hobby" store go in (something like Hobbytown USA).

As in this store will be gone within a year because it has no associaton with the Hanover area. How many people make quilts. If they do they shop at local stores.

By the way you can change your quote I am happily married with 6 kids.(none by the way who shop at "Hobby Lobby".) And I talk to a lot of people and they all say the same thing it is some gay store to be creative. Sorry not my cup of "tea".

I can say whatever I want. I am still in America. So if I want to say it is gay it is gay. The Obamba political speech police can't arrest me--yet.
