Day 424: Bit o' Irony

I added a new photograph to Creative Journey in my Photography section, Now Open

You think?

I'd say wide open!

The story behind this neighborhood pub and grill is actually a bit sad. The building has gone through several similar businesses and owners. The most recent owners appeared to put a lot of time and effort into a remodel, then opened their doors to business.

Though I've never been inside, it seemed like this time the business was going to be a definite GO! The parking lot and side streets were always lined with cars. The tables near the windows were always full. And there was a great buzz about the food.

Apparently, they had a fire earlier this summer. So the plywood and fences went up for a while. Then the building was gutted.

There is a sign on the north side of the building that "We will return." That takes a lot of dedication. Maybe Dale and I will even find our way to one of their tables one of these fine evenings ... one day ... after we're done with Jenny Craig.

(By the way, we're both doing well, three weeks into the program!)
