Jonathan Pitcher has his fingers crossed, he says. He and his wife, Amy, want their candy retail shop, Bizz & Weezy Confections, at 1800 Baltimore to be open in time for the First Friday crowd in the Crossroads on August 7. "If everything goes according to plan, we'll be open on that date," he says. "Or maybe a day or two later."
Located in the former Kim Weinberger Art Gallery, the shop is set to offer, among other treats, six kinds of caramels: bourbon, bacon, chocolate, raspberry, sea salt, and root-beer float. They're buttery, creamy and very satisfying.
But that's just the start, Jonathan Pitcher says: "We've developed recipes for over 40 caramels. We'll have quite an assortment."
