Hey, They're Gonna Put Something Else Here
This storefront's windows have been papered-out for ages. It's on 1st, between Virginia & Stewart. When I moved into the neighborhood, it was Cafe Sophie. And so it stayed for many years. But Sophie closed around five years ago and it became the Starlight Lounge, which didn't last long. I'm not sure why, because it always seemed like the place was packed. The clientele was very much on the douchey side, but that shouldn't have had anything to do with its short stint on this Earth. I dunno, maybe they were selling cocaine out of their kitchen, like they were doing at the former Brick Street (now part of the Gary|Manuel Salon on Blanchard. I won't speculate, but if somebody can solve the mystery of why the Starlight went out of business, please enlighten me. Anyhow, my point is that this place is going to be something soon. I hope it's something good and not another douchebag repository.
