  1. I’ve wondered about that billboard. Perhaps a way to propose to someone working in an east side office, but otherwise useless. I’m also looking with interest to the development at the old Thai Tiara site. Meanwhile the old Mother Egan’s is making substantial progress towards reopening, as a tequilla bar? Hope not.
