We’ve had several discussions here where long-time residents of the CD have expressed their feelings about how the neighborhood is changing and taking their traditional sense of community along with it. Another aspect of this is the impact on long-time family-owned businesses in the neighborhood, who suffer when their traditional customers move away. And too often the new arrivals ignore the older businesses, making the problem even worse.
And I’ll be honest – I’m part of the problem. I’ve lived here for 10 years, but have never eaten at one culinary institution in the CD: Thompson’s Point of View. Years ago I heard a single bad review from a friend and then I just never gave it a chance, in spite of living within a 10 minute walk from the restaurant.
If you’ve been to Thompson’s, tell us about your experience on the new review page for them. And if you haven’t, add it to your eating-out list and try to get out and support our local businesses.
And P.S. – Is Wednesday chess night still happening?
