“Don’t know if you’ve been in the new Yes! yet, but lookin’ pretty posh! The offices are in the new upstairs giving it added length. Roomier aisles and better stock, and a juice bar to boot (with soups.)

No sign of beer or wine yet, but according to the ABRA application the hearing date is June 29, so maybe it’ll just take awhile (don’t know where they’ll fit it!)”
