A quickie with no photos at this point but: it would appear that a snazzy new Ralph’s has reopened – it was buzzing last night, looking something like a 1940s milk bar holding a party for the mafia (I mean that lovingly). Perhaps we didn’t notice it before but it now seems to be officially called Ralph’s, a vintage sign over the door to prove it. The makeover is stylish. Hope we can do most of our shopping there and not at Fresh Garden or Evil Deli, both of which have evil prices.
Also, during our nightcap at Moe’s, we discovered that Moe’s has shaped up also: no more masking tape on the ceiling. The walls have been painted, new armchairs in place at the window booth. And the naked woman has been taken from the wall. Ok, we hope she comes back.
Point is: the oldies in the ‘hood are not going to be pushed out. Go Ralph’s!
