Neighborhood vignette

Monday 4/3/07: Had to go out @ ~ 10 PM: Deano's Grocery open, but no obvious customers. E. Madison Street deserted.

11:30 - Returned home via 23rd & Union/24th & Spring. Streets empty, Thompson's Point of View closed (shut Monday?), nobody on street, nobody outside Richlin's Super Mini!

While Club Chocolate City was in business, any similar drive-by would reveal 5 to 20 people on the street. Where are they all?

Back home via (deserted) E. Madison Street. Deano's Grocery now closed and chained up for the night. I've often seen the owner leaving at ~ 8PM (and not opening till after 9 AM). All the drinks compressed into one cooler. Shelves even more deserted than normal? Will the store stay open much longer?

Yesterday I noticed a fridge sitting on the sidewalk outside of the old Twilight Exit. Are they cleaning out the place in anticipation of demolition?
