I drove by Mocha Joe's former location yesterday, which got me thinking about local businesses lost in 2007. I guess the beginning of a new year is as good a time as any for some reflection.
In 2007 we said goodbye to the following:
Big Easy Café
F. Scott's Whiskey Bar & Grill
The Wine Experience
Cliff's Rod and Gun
The Paper Moon
Cinco de Mayo
I know of a few gone or on their way out in 2008. Let's hope the new year is good to our treasured local establishments, and that we also see some great new ventures!
