Dave, you are an awesome contribution to the street! And we in this area THANK YOU! It's the bars like Classic Cafe & Five Star that are problems!

I fear for Ola Olay Cafe, right in this area. Why is it necessary for 3 cafes at one intersection? Are these 'developers' (speculators) just that uncreative? Can they not think of a better use of a building than a bar/cafe?

I have only ever seen The Brain operate during Art Crawls. It's never open during regular days (I walk this street daily). And what's up with Rajin' Cajun!? Closed unless it's Art Crawl night?

It seems James North is crawling (ha!) with property speculators who just can't figure out what to do with their properties since media keeps hyping the street, while non-art crawl adventures can show James North's true colours...

All-in-all, I love this neighbourhood any day of the month, and highly doubt it will ever turn into a Hess-like district. At the same time, sadly, it seems to be losing it's Italian/Portugese heritage as well.

But Hey; That's Gentrification for you, folks!
