  • On the subject of Dino’s, what’s the scoop on the old location in Cleveland Park? I noticed they’ve been working on the space and just took the plywood off the windows, but I went by too quickly to notice what has transpired.

    • maxwell smart

      It’s going to be a 7-11

    • Yeah, I think half of it is going to be a 7-11. I’m guessing they’re still shopping the other half of it. I’m annoyed that its not something better, but I think a 7-11 will serve a need for the zoo tourists, and its better than a pretty ugly vacant storefront.
