*Everyday Chatter

The new Fedora has lost its old sign and gained a replica--without the dings and rust spots of history:

The Walker finds "real, honest-to-God local entertainment" on the shuttle train. [WIC]

Sad news about The Stoned Crow and Hickey's. Two more down. And Fedora told me that the new owners were going to keep the original sign. Why am I not surprised they went back on that? I think I'll stay away from the new place and remember it as it was.

No, not the Stoned Crow! I love that place. :( What a shame. At this point, we should just gather all our dead favorite places and re-open them all in one space: Max Stoned Crow Fish Fedora...on Mars.
