Quick update on downtown Laurel -- Mango's Grill and Irene's have both closed on U.S. 1 and aim to open just a little farther from Howard County, reports Kevin Rector on Explore Howard.
Mango's is a nice Mexican place that used to be just south of Main Street near the Rte 198 intersection. Irene's was a place that did Mexican and Salvadoran next door. They closed to make way for a Walgreens, according to a March column by Jeff Dudley.
Rector reported that Mango's has signed a lease a little farther south on U.S. 1. Dudley says that Irene's is moving a little east to Rte 198 near the Home Depot.
