Karen Hawkinson’s head falls into her hands and she laughs when you ask her how it came to be that she is the new owner of a steakhouse and lounge in Tioga.
“I guess it’s just in my blood,” she says, thinking of how her mother, Elinor Ramsdell, waited tables and tended bar through the years.
Karen soon found the same kind of work.
“I have since I’ve been 21, I’ve been working in bars and doing this line of work,” she says, including at the very same place she became the owner of on Feb. 15.
