“This Little Piggy Foot Spa and Nails Etc.” Opens in Pigtown

This Little Piggy Foot Spa and Nails Etc. opened this past Saturday at 781 Washington Blvd. in Pigtown. The space was previously occupied by MetroPCS before it closed earlier this fall.

This Little Piggy is owned by Carol Blakeney who relocated to Pigtown from Maine five months ago. She noticed there were no other nail shops in the neighborhood and decided she would open one herself after learning about the soon-to-be-vacant retail space while attending the Pigtown Festival. Blakeney has been doing nails for 25 years and owned multiple nail shops in Maine.

Food Network named Pigtown’s Breaking Bread the best place to eat with kids

The Food Network named Pigtown’s own, Breaking Bread the best place to eat with kids, writing “in warm, sunny environs comfortable for all comers, they offer crowd-pleasing cooking prepared with a touch more flair than you’ll find in the average home kitchen.”

Food Network wrote;

“Caterer-turned-restaurateur Kimberly Ellis owns and operates Breaking Bread with her husband, Edward, and she’s also a mother and grandmother — so it’s no surprise that their Pigtown BYOB goes out of its way to make the entire family happy. In warm, sunny environs comfortable for all comers, they offer crowd-pleasing cooking prepared with a touch more flair than you’ll find in the average home kitchen — look for their signature sweet-and-spicy “stickywings,” plus burgers, salads, seafood and more. But there are also many thoughtful kid-friendly dishes designed to make things a little easier on parents. It’s the perfect menu to explore as you gather for one of their regular game nights, when the restaurant opens its tables up to families looking to spend some old-fashioned quality time together over board games and conversation.”
