Cafe Al dente closes on Saturday...says the new landlord won't renew their lease.

Winslow's closing too....middle of October.


Addition by subtraction IMO

Yes!!!! they are both prime real estate. Something good and popular on al dentes corner could completely revolutionize that corner. Also heard that there won't be ice cream in the old streetcar

So what's the plan for the old streetcar?

What I heard is that they are still fixing it up, but don't have a tenant. I'm not really sure what is going on its just what I heard

The supposed ice cream vendor that was going in the "antique" streetcar was never real. Supposedly was just a conversation the developer had and he liked the sound of it so.... It will look nice once they fix it up I hope. I want to love the idea, but at the moment I'm skeptical. And yes they are working on that old streetcar. It's pretty ugly right now, but they are at least working on it.

Also heard (count this as rumor for now) that Farmhouse might shrink into half of its current space.

Interesting. Sure sounded like a solid done deal already

I am willing to open an ice cream business in there. We will serve many exotic flavors with names like... DeJanes Right of Way Sorbet, Sherry Mush, Burke Chop Suey, Tutti Fruity Clay Chastuty, Lawuit Swirl, Touristy Frou-frou, Sinquefield Fudge, Nutter Brickle, El Bryan Dingleberry, and Petition Mint. Or you can get a big mixed dip, called Anti Everything.

I am working on a project about The City Market and other downtown neighborhoods for school. How would you describe the City Market/River Market Area during the years 2000-2005?
