Think about it, do we really need the equivalent of Don Pablos in the Short North?

“Name the Next Shittty Restaurant/Retail Chain to Enter the Short North Contest!”

Be the first to name the next shitty retailer/restaurant to enter the Short North, and we’ll give you a $100.00 gift certificate for the establishment you picked!

Excluded shitty establishments for this contest include: Marchella’s or any other CM restaurant, or the inevitable coming of the 2nd Short North Starbucks…
