I’m a big fan of supporting local businesses, so this week John and I were so bummed to hear that the local movie theater shut down. I guess they weren’t making enough money. We loved it, though. Granted, we’ve only been once since L was born, but we always bought popcorn. Sigh.
And then, Sunday, we decided to go to the new H. Allen’s restaurant that opened in the shop where Louie’s and Rose’s had been before. You might see where this is going. The sign in front said, "Thank ou for our support," and on the back, "fur sale." We’d only gotten to go there once!
It may seem less exciting than the more commercial Olive Garden, or have fewer options than the Hollywood 16 – but go, support your local favorite whatever. Or you may not have a local anything left!
