ELITE MARTIAL ARTS, SPENCER, MA I am really impressed with Elite Martial Arts in Spencer, MA.  Both my children are attending karate lessons there and they LOVE IT!!  You have the opportunity to go to lessons on multiple nights and have birthday parties or just a karate party to get your friends interested in karate!  They have great family social opportunities, school vacation camps, and summer camps..... They are providing the opportunity for the children to teach their parents, grandparents etc how karate works and we get a chance to participate with the children!!  They do this periodically for newer students and parents needing "instruction."  I am so excited because I have NO IDEA what to do or how to keep my children on track!  So if you were thinking about karate lessons for yo...

Two Chefs- Spencer Ma A great place to eat!!! It gets my 5 star rating!!! I have had the pleasure on 2 occasions to eat at a newer restaurant in Spencer Called Two Chefs. The restaurant is call Two Chefs because of the fine two chefs that own the place.  Rafael Guzman, a native of Puerto rico, and Cassandra Clough, a talented chef born in our own Central Mass.  Both Rafael and Cassandra graduated from the New England Culinary Institute in Vermont in 2006.  Once Rafael and Cassandra graduated with their AOS in culinary arts and baking and pastry arts, they went on to sharpen their skills in New York, Boston, and throughout Massachusetts.  Rafael even featured his talent at Tom Colicchio's restaurant. Put their talent together and it is an oral masterpiece.
