Out and about in the Hollywood District.

hlythrbnrIn case you have not noticed the building adjacent to Hollywood Theater is almost complete. A bit nicer then the barren patch a dirt that was left after the previous structure burned to the ground. I don’t think they have found an anchor tenant for the ground floor storefront.

You can now cut across the alleyway to Broadway Street so you can shop at Rite Aid 8:00am-10:00pm then stop by Trader Joes or Blue-fin  Sushi. Both places I highly recommend.

Directly across the street is a somewhat new tobacco shop. The prices seem to be better then Hollywood Market and the Corner Market depending on what brand and how you want to purchase your coffin nails.

In the Rite Aid building the comic book store or Sequential Art book store as my ex wife refers to it is no more. In its stead there is a cobbler to fix your shoes if they need a fixen.

atomic pizzaAtomic Pizza is now open. The offer up pizza by the slice or a whole pie if you wish. I thought it was to be a vegan pizza place because of the menu at their sister store but I think they ditched that business model. I tried a slice of Canadian Bacon and Pineapple that was fresh out of the oven and had it to go. It was pretty good I will be back. The icing on the cake is they offer up free WiFi.

There is a new bicycle repair shop/pub right around the corner from the laundry mat across the street from the postal annex. I popped in there the other afternoon to check it out and some bluegrass band was practicing a bartender behind the taps and a mechanic fixing some bikes. Only in Portland would one see this. Perhaps this is why sometimes this area of town is called Hollyweird neighborhood.

It looks like we will nice weather for the Easter Weekend so if you get cabin fever walk or roll around and get some of the fresh air and see the sites.
