are we ever going to get that heller's?



my roommate pointed out to me last week that they were cinder-blocking in the front entrance of the southeast corner of 1st and t, where it has been rumored since before i moved to bloomingdale that heller's bakery would be opening a satellite location. looks like they did that and added bricks just for good measure, to make sure there's never a door there again.

now, i still believe that, heller's there and an argonaut clone at the corner of 1st and seaton would make bloomingdale the most kick-ass neighborhood in the city, bar none (eat that, eckington!) whatever's going on in these pictures, though, doesn't look promising for that vibrant little commercial district i dream of on 1st street...

oh! an argonaut would be great. thats one of my favorite holes in the city.

if hellers had opened up before the big bear or windows, that would have been one thing, but at this point we need a bar and some nightime stuff.

I actually contacted Hellers a few weeks ago (their email address is at the website), and they said they'd still like to open the branch on 1st. Maybe it would help if we all expressed interest.

hey, anon, that's a good idea (and lazy of me for not trying to contact them myself). maybe it's time to start up a little campaign...
