Go Quietly











I was disappointed but not surprised to find that the doors were locked at the 9th Inning Sports Bar & Grill as I sought nourishment during a set break at the Blue Room on Monday.  The signs in the windows promoting Monday Night Football beer specials seemed to mock me.  This report confirms the closure of the establishment directly underneath the neon 18th & Vine sign.  I patronized the place a few times.  The miniature sports museum was cool and the staff was friendly.  But the food looked and tasted as if it came straight off as Sysco delivery truck.  And the young waitresses, while really sweet, were woefully inexperienced.  The jazz district's ongoing power outage saddens me.

    I was also in the 18th and Vine district Monday. I didn't try to eat, but after dropping my daughter off at her dance class I needed to go to a drug store. The closest CVS was at Independence Ave & Prospect. The nearest Walgreens was at Prospect & Linwood Blvd. The area needs some basic amenities for the thousands that live in Parade Park and the new apartment and condos in the area. The powers that be need to skip searching for financing for the redevelopment of the old YMCA and focus on bringing drug stores, grocery stores, dry cleaners, and other commercial establishments that the people who live there can use.

    Hey, Kip, I spent a couple minutes on the sidewalk watching kids dance through the window at Ailey on Monday. I would have lingered longer, but I could tell that one of the mothers was beginning to think I was a creep.

    You're right- the addition of a CVS or Walgreens would dramatically improve the quality of life in the area.
