Francesca's closes its doors

A really good Italian restaurant near Duke hospital closed today. I was planning on dinner there with rtptodd this evening. When we got there, there was a sign on the door stating today was their last day and they've already closed for the day. Saw one of the owners and he just said they sold the property (not surprising with the nice stuff going up around it) and they were closing down for good. Very casual place to go and I'm sure lots of Duke students went there.

rtptodd and I ended up going to TGIF right next door and had a great time with some great laughs. We definitely need to hang out more and I plan on it. We're already talking about several travel plans to do some whitewater stuff and more biking this year.

This reminds me of my Forbidden City story. I know how you feel...I'm sorry for your loss. :-)

I hate when someplace you've been eating for years suddenly closes and you know you'll never have their food again. Of course I'm a fat pig motivated by my addiction to food...

I always joke and say that's why I prefer chain restaurants, because they're always around.

Reminds me of the sad week a decade ago when within a week, both Papagayo's and the Ninth St Bar & Grill closed - my favorite straight-friendly gay restaurant and my favorite gay-friendly grungy straight bar. So very Durham! I presume that wasn't Francesca's, the ice cream place, though.
