A place, gone

Also on my mind last week, adding to the weirdness of that week: on Thursday morning, the six-unit apartment building where Big-Ass Sandwiches was located for a year burned. The worst damage is on the second floor and in the attic; the cause was likely an electrical problem. I've heard, but haven't had it confirmed, that the building is a total loss and will be torn down.

Means that over a dozen people (19, I'd heard) are out of a home. I'm being selfish in thinking of the place from my perspective: I just ate there a lot, for the year that Big-Ass Sandwiches was a brick-and-mortar. But it was an important place for me. It was a really important place for my friends who opened their restaurant. And it was an even more important place for the people who were living there.

And it might not be there anymore, after this.
