Above? A glimpse of a favorite Cincinnati mural: Allegro. (A better view from a previous snapshot.)
Hopped in the car with no plans other than find a good place to walk around, then get some takeout food.
Drove through downtown and saw The Chong, Inc. building was sold and the business was gone. It had been pretty much been going out of business for 30 years (according my memory and folks on Reddit). Lots of places were gone. I always marveled at what they had on display. So did Ronny Salermo and he took some snapshots back in 2018.
New hotel, the Kinley. Stared longingly through the windows at the lobby and restaurant. The latter on a list of “most anticipated” American restaurant openings of 2020 (Citybeat article). I will reserve my dubious feelings about lists because I want restaurants to weather this storm.
Alright. Now let’s switch to the angled section of photos.
Fascinating rehab of the building below. It’s going to be a Towneplace Suites by Marriot when complete. Yep, another hotel.
