Domku got a cool new picket fence out front and some new art is being displayed inside.


There’s lots more art to be seen but here’s a taste:


In the sad news department, clothing store and former neat neighborhood find, Shaka King Menswear, has closed.


I spoke with some folks out front who said Mr. King had moved to Florida. While I wasn’t a regular at his shop, I thought he was a really nice guy and I liked the flavor his store brought to the block. Hopefully, someone/thing equally cool will move in. I’m hoping for a shawarma/falafel spot…
