Nobody is going to yell out your name when you walk through this door off Falls Road, and, if we can be frank, that’s the way we like it after getting our hair did, hitting Starbucks, dropping a double-digit percentile of our paycheck at Whole Foods, or taking our pet to the vet in Mount Washington—a neighborhood where we don’t mean to get all suburban but somehow still do. A coupla cheap beers, free snacks, and maybe one of the tasty burgers at cool, dark Curb Shoppe is an hour spent watching whatever sports are on and chilling to Journey sans irony. People are accommodating, but only the drunks chat you up, nothing is organic, and our world is back in balance.
