Local biz casualties 2007

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
Katie's Café
Mocha Joe's
The Paper Moon
Leo's Flowers
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!

I was surprised to hear of Leonardo's...I never ate there...but I think the hubby did a time or two with the boys. I thought that place was relatively popular!

Sullivan's may not be owned by Sully anymore, but the establishment is still there and still serving the same cuisine, despite a new owner and new name. I happen to know the new owner and think Sully made a good decision on who he sold it to.

R.I.P. local businesses. It was good to have you around as long as you were.
