|The Great Cannibal Pumpkin|
And on the subject of candy, what about the closing -- today's the final day, folks -- of the popular Russell Stover Candy Kitchen on 51st Street? That post led to conversation about the original Russell Stover flagship store on Linwood Boulevard and the building's current Frankenstein-like makeover, which also makes us think of this.
There wasn't much reaction in Fat City over the closing of the Coyote Grill -- did anyone really care? -- but Jonathan's post about the Definition of a Dive Bar encouraged comments. On a happier note, the new Ingredient opened downtown -- ready to scrap it up with another new restaurant with a similar concept: Marie Scaglia's new The Mixx in the Power & Light District.
And finally, how about the Top Ten Pumpkin Dishes in town?
