the blimpees/nathans awning is up.

there was a sign up across the street that said "la bagel delight - coming soon", but now its gone.

boo's bagels around the corner is open, but it seems like they dont make their own bagels, and usually have about 7 bagels total in the store and 2 types of cream cheese.

cafe lafayette has reopened with a fresh coat of paint, and it has been packed. i guess people dont mind that the board of health shut it down for being filthy.

solar-powered cuban is tasty, and they seem to have finally kind of somewhat gotten their shit together. trying to order is no longer the complete cluster-f it was when they first opened, although the girl taking orders did ask me "which letter is the 'd'? the long stick with the circle?" when she was writing down my name (seriously).

they still seem to be working on the mystery restaurant on the corner of st, felix and fulton, as they have been for the past year and a half or so.

gia still seems to be empty every time i walk by.

there is still a line out the door waiting for a table at applebees every weekend.

um.....i think thats it. am i forgetting anything?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
