QUINCY — The Townshend, which has been quietly building up a cult following since opening in Quincy Center almost a year ago, launched a late-night menu last night, now available every night at the end of dinner service. The restaurant is open until 1 a.m. Monday through Saturday.
ALL OVER THE PLACE — So many breweries are in the works these days, and many have been sharing plenty of construction updates. Notch Brewing (Salem) and Idle Hands (Malden) both got their floors poured this week, and Dorchester Brewing Company's installing a bright green floor today. Meanwhile in Cambridge, Lamplighter's forklift got a snazzy teal facelift. [FB]
UNION SQUARE — After some delays, Journeyman has set a schedule for its renovations and rebirth. Its last service will be on April 3 before closing for a few weeks for the previously announced changes, and the plan is to reopen April 21. When it does reopen, there'll be a wood-burning fireplace instead of the existing kitchen equipment, and on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays, the restaurant will have more of a casual feel with a la carte offerings.

ON THE INTERNET — Updates on Kickstarter campaigns we've previously covered: Deacon Giles Distillery in Salem needs a little under $4,000 more with nine days to go to launch a barrel-aged rum project; Falmouth-based The Gathered Table, looking to build a mobile kitchen, has raised about a fourth of its $42,000 goal with 11 days left; and Somerville Coffee Crew needs about $3,000 more in the next 10 days to bring its refurbished, coffee-peddling Citroen H Van closer to reality.
